The Daffodils Are Waiting

For seven straight days now it has been cloudy and cold here. I realize this is spring and we can’t expect lovely weather every day, but SEVEN days of cloudy dreary weather is just a bit much. Everyone is dragging themselves around going through the motions and waiting for at least one good warm day. The sun tried to peek out yesterday, but the evil clouds quickly hog-tied it into submission. So we wait. The only bright spot in the garden right now is the daffodil bed.

There are a few buds there waiting along with the rest of us for the sun. The first warm day they get, those buds will explode in a riot of joyous spring celebration.

I can’t wait.
