Spring Forward!

“Though many a flower in the wood is waking,

The daffodil is our doorside queen;

She pushes upward the sword already,

To spot with sunshine the early green.”

--William Cullen Bryant, An Invitation to the Country 

May we all wake an hour earlier tomorrow morning with a promise of spring by our doorstep!

 

In the spirit of full disclosure, the urn pictured above is not mine but rather a round-the-corner  neighbor’s.  In the spirit of exceptionally full disclosure, my neighbor told me that her neighbor fills her urns as a gift each spring.  In the spirit of ridiculously full disclosure, now I am jealous of both her urns and her neighbor!  And the Mister reminds me, “Comparison is the thief of joy!”

  2. The Mister is correct, but I can so relate! The urn and flowers are wonderful. I am very excited to Spring forward tonight! This year is probably the first year than I have asked repeatedly, "when does the time change" because I am so, so, so ready!

    Happy Weekend from the Pee Dee!

  3. Your round the corner neighbors' planter is GORGEOUS and makes me want to run not walk to the nearest nursery and get busy with my spring planting...that is just perfection!

  8. Love the beautiful daffodils - can't wait to see them popping up around here. And although I'm a little groggy today with the time change, it was great to have the extra light at the ed of the day!
