Our weather has been so anomalously warm this year that we have blasted through springtime. Many things are two to three weeks ahead of time, and worse yet, going so fast that it’s hard to fully relish them. The daffodils are declining and the Rhododendron shown above is already finished. We usually expect many weeks of daffodils from start to finish but this year we are getting them all at once. We have been picking baskets of daffodils from the woods and hillside and bringing them inside for close enjoyment.
Once inside the daffodils are providing the mainstay of flowers for inside viewing and fragrance. Beth spends a good deal of time arranging the flowers all over the house.
