Daffadowndilly

She wore her yellow sun-bonnet,
She wore her greenest gown;
She turned to the south wind
And curtsied up and down.
She turned to the sunlight
And shook her yellow head
And whispered to her neighbour:
"Winter is dead"

AA Milne









Today I am declaring winter dead.

  23. After the 3 feet of snow have gone from my lawn and flower beds hopefully I will some green. The daffodils are beautiful!

  24. I would like to have a bright yellow daffodil whisper in my ear. Perhaps this fantasy might seem more real in another few weeks. Meanwhile, I cherish the dream and thank you for reminding me of this poem.

    Another sign of Spring, the Weeping Willow over the road is starting to get the sharp green of the first leaves.
