I can’t get enough daffodils, which is perfect. Within a week all the flowering shrubs and trees will be coming and the daffodils will no longer be the only show in town. Because spring has been so slow in coming I think there will be an explosion of spring for a couple of weeks and then we will have summer. My camera is on constant standby so I don’t miss any of spring’s glory.
This morning I went to my friend Pat’s house to photograph her daffodils She is still grieving the loss of her husband who planted them just before he died. I think the beauty of the flowers remind Pat of the beauty of their relationship. I hope their symbolism of new life that springs from the frozen ground will also symbolize the potential for a new life for Pat. These images are for you, my friend, on this glorious first day of May.
You can click on any of the photos to see them in a slide show. May you experience all the blessings of Spring.
