Thinking of Daffodils
On my weekend walks, I am seeing the daffodils starting to rise up out the the damp winter soil, some are about 6" tall, and starting to form buds. They probably won't bloom for another 2 to 3 weeks, some time in March. The crocus are usually first, and I do have two Hellebore plants in bloom, with lovely mauve bell type flowers, they are also called "Lenten Rose" because they bloom during Lent. They are hard to photograph, because they hang down, you have to lay on your belly and get your elbows muddy to take the pics. So now, I can't wait for spring!! I want to make a daffodil quilt, I don't need any new projects, but I have over 100 daffodil photos, so I am thinking of printing a few on fabric, cutting them into vertical strips and thread painting them. Just a quickie small wall hanging to jump start my spring. Photos - Last years Daffodils, and Hellebore from Feb 2012.
