MUMS AND DAFFODILS (for Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge – Close-Ups)

Sunny Mum

Spring brought back my enthusiasm to take photographs.  The bursting colors ache to be captured for posterity.  They are good reminders that the dreary white of winter do not last even when it seems to grab  every nook and cranny of my world  and last forever.


I remember asking myself if all the snow we had would ever go away.  The snowbanks seem too high   I wondered if they would melt in time for us to enjoy some spring.  The warming sun did not disappoint.   After a couple of days of  bright sunshine and above freezing temperature, a lot of the snow retreated.  Soon, we could see the ground and early bulbs peeking out.

Yellow MumNow, the daffodils and hyacinths are in bloom.  The trees are budding.  The anticipation for all the beauties yet to unfold has obscured the gloomy memories of a frozen season.


P.S.  Please hover over the photos to remove the misty effect. 🙂 Thank you.
