Every spring I look forward to picking up a little bunch of daffodils from Trader Joe’s. I know when these bright stems show up in the store, real spring is just around the corner. My first experience with a bouquet of daffodils was years ago when Naoto and I were “just friends”. I wasn’t feeling well–I had a bad spring cold–and he showed up at my door with tea, honey, an orange, some vitamins and a tiny bouquet of yellow cheer.

Last weekend Naoto bought three bouquets for the Fondue Fun Night, but they didn’t bloom until my birthday. Huge explosions of sunshine popped up throughout our apartment, making the sting of the snowfall  just a little less painful.

It’s the little things that make me smile…especially as I wait (not-so) patiently for spring.

    Beautiful. Spring is here. Just doesn’t feel quite like it yet. Anxiously awaiting flowers coming up in yard. Enjoy your touch of Spring!

    Lovely daffodils. Tulips are shouting ‘spring’ in our living room. Not loud enough apparently as outside it remains cold.

      Same here, Cath! After a nice weekend, it’s freezing here today again! It won’t be until later in April/May that we are done with coats for the season. P.S. You were my 500th comment 🙂
