Accent

Spring has finally arrived! We have had many sunny days and snow is starting to melt away. Nothing is growing outside yet but not that long wait anymore.

Managed to spent a long weekend in the Netherlands and visit Keukenhof. Spent few hours in the garden and returned back home my bags full of bulbs.

Bought yet another daffodil, Accent, to brighten my day.

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.

The spring is nearly here! Two more months and you can actually do things in the garden!

To manage the excruciating wait I have been visiting shops to ease my pain. On one of those trips I bought a narcissus which turned out to be a beautiful choice.

My challenge was that it is too worm inside and still too cold outside for narcissus. I needed to figure out a place in between. I ended up squeezing the flower between the window glasses and to my big surprise it worked!

The narcissus has been blooming two weeks and it even seems to enjoy the place. Must go and shop for some moreā€¦

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!

Daffodil

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.
