Daffodils Are Up
Just a week away from Spring (this year the Vernal Equinox occurs March 20, 2010) and the bright yellow daffodils are up and smiling, reminding us that warmer weather is on the way. Of course, for every year of my life, for as long as I can remember in this neck of the woods, the bright flowers that traditionally symbolize friendship and sometimes referred to as jonquils in the South, get a dose of some type of cold on them before Spring arrives. Be it ice, snow, frost or freezing rain, it seems to always happen. Yesterday, it briefly happened again as the clouds moved in and dropped a little, very little snow on the daffodils.
