this week’s bouquet

This week’s bouquet is a lovely combination of sunlight and simplicity.

We had strong thunderstorms yesterday and very high winds today, leaving many of the daffodils with their faces in the dirt. With a soft shower in the kitchen sink, they were soon looking lovely and happy again.

I knew they wouldn’t be able to pick themselves up again, so I decided to bring them in and enjoy their beauty. Being quarantined and working from home, I am able to carry them around from room to room to fully enjoy their company and uplifting presence.

Daffodils are not an exotic flower, but they contain within themselves, the essence of hope. To me, they shout winter is behind us, and joy, sun, warmth, and color are on the way. They are the trumpeters of spring.

This little sweetheart, actually has a double trumpet.

In these troubling and difficult times of uncertainty, I pray these simple daffodils bring you joy, hope, and a smile to your face.

  1. The quality of light in these pictures is stunning, Cindy, almost ethereal, and it really shows these off for the sunny blooms they are. I especially like that frothy double one. Thanks for sharing

  2. Thank you Cathy. They have been right next to me all day as I work, and every once in awhile, I stick my whole face in them to soothe my soul and absorb their smell and sunshine.
