into the life of any man or woman,
I shall feel that I have worked with God."

I see you've been recording God's artistry to share, dear Joey. And beautifully done it is!
thank you for that glorious sunset and the sunny daffodils.
I noticed, with surprise, on Sunday, that some of ours are actually budding.
And our crocuses began blooming last Saturday in those wonderful warm temperatures! Yay!

Beautiful sunsets and beautiful daffodils. Mine should be blooming in a couple weeks. How welcome that will be.

Awesome sunset shots. Your cheery Daffodil photos were just what I needed on this dreary day. Mine still haven't started blooming yet. I'm not sad to see March go, though it wasn't that bad. I can say this now that most of the snow has melted.

Goodbye March, Hello April! How exciting is that Joey? Another month closer to the garden being in full glory. :)

Maggie said...

Beautiful photos! Are the daffodils from this year?

Hi Nutty and thanks. Needed a nap after reading your post :)

Thanks Sheila ... Happy April!

You are so sweet, Kerri. My only crocus opened on Sat also ... I've planted 100s throughout the years and finally gave up ... my chipmunks the fattest in the village and my neighbors yards look heavingly with my crocus in bloom (actually, I found 2 others blooming behind a yew ... the buggers must have been either full or tired of carting them around :)

My daffs are popping in the sunniest spots, Marnie. Life is pushing, r e s t i n g, and pushing through the earth!

I agree, MMG ... 6 yrs ago we spent several days without power. Feel blessed and perhaps have turned the spring corner :) Happy April!

Hello April, Racquel! Indeed this month is a favorite and a prelude to May, my ultimate favorite! BTY, your garden is looking lovely :)

Some yes, some no, some in, some out, Maggie ... a March tribute to flower of the month.

Joey, love the sunsets over the lake. It must be heaven for you to see them. I also love the daffodils-they say spring with a capital S. But OH MY! Those pure wite daffodils are beyond anything I have ever seen! I actually gasp when I saw them. Thank you for showing those. Hope you have a great April.

I AM in heaven at the lake, dear Beckie! Thank you for you thoughtful comments. Blessings for you and your father. Happy wishes for a beautiful April!
