Daffodil Day

It's become a rite of spring time, the day that the children and I load up baskets and tromp to the woods to what we call the "daffodil meadow".

I can just barely see the yellow from our house.

There's an old crumbling ruin of a cottage, and in front, loads of old, old, daffodils.

They are very small, delicate flowers. It takes a while to collect a nice amount.

I just love this old place!

Look closely and you'll see a bit of old flowery wallpaper.

I wonder if that was the kitchen.

Snow last weekend, and now, it feels like spring. Mother Nature likes to keep us on our toes!

February Snow

We finally got a good snowfall, never mind that the forecast is calling for mid sixties in a few days.

I enjoyed lighting all the candles in the living room and watching the snow fall.

Little Brother has wanted snow all winter!

Later, he fell asleep in my arms. I'm so glad he still occasionally does that!

It's the simple things.... life, that can bring so much happiness.

He spends hours playing with his tow truck, hooking it to anything that he can find.
