Jonquils

Nothing says spring quite like Daffodiles and I just noticed that I have the beginnings of one up in my back yard.  I have several clumps here and there that are a couple inches tall, but this one actually has the flower starting to form.  And I also have crocuses in bloom.  Yes, spring is coming here in the Northeast despite the snow we had last weekend.  So, this card is a little bit of spring-y sunshine for you.  Enjoy.
