Thursday's Inspiration: Spring



There is something about naturalized narcissus that just speaks to me.  I think maybe it is the combination of elegance and comfort -- such a graceful, elegant flower growing in the midst of the shaggy spring grass...  like a beautiful woman in torn jeans and a t-shirt.  Does that make sense?

As many of you know, spring is my favorite season.  I love all the signs of new life bursting from the cold and brown winter earth.  From the early snowdrops through the golden forsythia, spring is a parade of natural wonders and a feast for tired winter eyes.  :)

Next week's word prompt is breakfast.  I will be away for the following two weeks.  I come back by May 30th, so let's do country then.  OK?  Looking forward to seeing all your inspiration!  :)

  1. It is beautiful indeed to see a sight like this. I happened to see yellow ones blooming along a field the other day but not in a place where I could get a photo. Thank you for hosting. Pamela

  3. Lovely daffodils! They do certainly say spring, unlike the snow we're getting today. Good thing I did my spring post yesterday to link up. :-)

  5. Daffodils are definitely a harbinger of spring - tulips too if the squirrels haven't dug them out.

  8. That clump of narcissus in the long grass is a lovely shot. Wild or naturalized flowers have a beauty all their own.

    Daffodils and Snowdrops are the first sign of Spring in my neck of the woods.
    This is a very pretty family or maybe they're just friends "getting together"!!
