Is Spring Finally Here?

It was one of those March days when the sun shines hot and the wind blows cold, when it is summer in the light and winter in the shade.

~Charles Dickens

We've had an unusually long, cold winter here in the Creston Valley. For the last 3 weeks, I keep saying to my husband that it can't be long now. Well, we are finally starting to see warmer temperatures, the snow has melted, the birds are arriving in large numbers and taking over the bare branches.

The sounds of their chirping is wonderful! My spring bulbs are slowly and hesitantly popping their heads up from the damp, cold ground. I couldn't stand to wait for them any longer, so I purchased a small bundle of daffodils from my florist and quickly captured their likeness here. I hope you enjoy "Golden Trumpets".

1. GIFTING a bouquet of daffodils is believed to ensure happiness to the recipient?

2. Daffodils are an ideal flower for novice gardeners as they will "naturalize. Meaning that they can be counted on to come up year after year, and spread informally throughout your garden.

3. Daffodils could flower for anywhere from six weeks to six months, depending on growing conditions. When you cut daffodils to bring indoors, be sure to leave the bulbs in the ground so they can return year after year.

4. Daffodils contain sap that's often poisonous to other plants. If you want to mix them with other flowers in a vase, soak them in water for 24 hours first to remove the sap.

5.To extend their vase life place them in a cool room or in your refrigerator overnight. Give them fresh water daily and no additives.
