The Thrill of Daffodils

Yes, that's right, daffodils thrill me.  You might have gathered that, given the name of my blog.  I have always found these flowers to be a sign of hope and promise and renewal, pretty but with great strength, too.  And the fragrance!  Don't get me started on that fresh, clean scent.  Heaven.  Plus, they're yellow, and yellow is my favorite color.  Can you tell?



Note the vase—$2.99 from Tuesday Morning.






More daffodils in the foyer.  I love the yellow pop against the white bookshelf.  The other day I put three daffodils in a small vase and left them in my office with the door closed.  What a happy room that was the next morning, far better than any perfume or room deodorizer!




This is just a little blog of happy today!

  9. I love daffodils but my daughter hates them. It cracks me up that when we drive down our street she will say "Look at those ugly flowers". She is such a nut. How can you not love daffodils? I asked her. She said they reminded her of the talking flowers from Alice in Wonderland. Funny

  11. To me, picking daffodils is like scooping up handfuls of sunshine and bringing them inside. The vase is wonderful and the price is amazing! Few people can rock yellow like you can! ~ Maureen
