I got all excited last week when I noticed the daffodil bulbs I had planted just a few weeks ago were putting up leaves, which at the time were only an inch or two high. One Friday evening, I took more photos because I was surprised at how quickly the leaves were growing. They were now 6 to 8 inches high. As I snapped photos, I noticed a swelling bud on one of the plants.
This morning started out a bit windy and cloudy, but as I surveyed the garden, I caught sight of a little ray of sunshine...
There are buds on a lot of the others now, but I'm not sure if I will get to see them as I leave the house before dawn to go to work and it's more or less dark by the time I get home at this time of year.
That's what made this little gem so precious!
