Daffodils by linfrye

A simply practice and quick sketch of one of the many daffodils so brightly blooming on the Arboretum grounds. Though the days have cooled to the highest temps in the low 50s, the sun's longer range during the day and the previous days of hotter temps have brought these bright trumpeters from their slumber and into the bright sunshine.

There's much to do this weekend as spring moves into higher gear ... I have a few more plants to put into the ground, some raspberries and seeds, and all of the plants need a deep drink of water. We are still much in need of a good, long rain.

Hope your day is wonderful and restive!

Elegant simplicity!

I got so excited yesterday...I saw a tiny bud on a rhododendrum bush. Is that possible....spring in the air? It sure doesn't feel like it. Enjoy!!

You are definitely in a springy mindset dear friend. This is a lovely addition to the previous day's offering. I agree with Joan: simply elegant! Always one of my favorite sites early in the spring. You've captured the curls and hollows beautifully.
