♥ Fair daffodils

 

I love this time of year.  Spring has sprung and the worst excesses of the winter weather are a distant memory and harbingers of warmer times abound.  I particularly love the short season of the daffodils.  They are everywhere; long yellow ribbons along the sides of the roadways, peeping out in gardens in sharp contract to the bare-branched shrubs and clusters clumped around the bases of majestic trees.  Sadly they do ‘haste away so soon’.

 

To me  little things  can make a world of  difference.  For instance, I love looking at the bunch of daffodils I plonked  into a blue pottery jug they shout out good cheer.

Loads of little donations  can add up to a lot of money.  Tomorrow the Irish Cancer Society holds its annual Daffodil Day appeal, hopefully the collection will not be too badly effected by the economic downturn.
