Daffodil

Enjoying the long Easter weekend and the beautiful weather we have. Days are now bright and full of light because of the snow cover and increasing day light time.

Have had time to take long walks and see friends. To cook good food and enjoy peaceful dinners.

Inside the Easter flowers are blooming. Daffodils are my favorites during this time of the year. Still more than a month before we can see any of them outside.

This spring seems to be all about the daffodils. Each time I go to a store or shop I manage to buy one pot more.

I have been trying to collect different varieties and there are so many available this year.

My plan is to take them all to the summer cottage after the snow is gone. This way I can enjoy them during the forth coming years as well.

Still two more months to go before the spring flowers start to bloom outside. Cannot wait that long! I am getting impatient!

Indoors the firs daffodils are starting to bloom. They brighten my mood and bring me joy.

The weather up here in the north has been grey with plenty of rain. Not something we are used to at this time of the year. Usually we have snow and sunshine but no such luck this time.

Well hope this means that spring will come early! Or am I just wishing this to be true?

PS. Daffodils last over a month if you have the possibility to keep them outside in the cool temperature.

Sometimes you just get lucky! When gardening you never know are you heading for a success or for a total failure. This time I accidentally managed to plant something beautiful.

During Easter I always end up buying daffodils. They last few weeks in a pot and then you need to decide what to do with them. Last year I took mine to the garden and just stuck them next to a stone and forgot their existence.

This week I remembered them when Tete-a-Tetes started to bloom. Small and delegate but so easy for my eyes.

PS. If you have a possibility plant the bulbs that you have bought in a pot. You never know. You might get lucky as well.
