that made me smile today, despite all the wind and the rain …

Bulbs in bloom

Heavenly scented hyacinths & Quackers!

Flora in the garden

First daffs of the year

It was so dark that I had to keep the lamps on in the kitchen until well after breakfast this morning.  My first joy of the day though is the smell of hyacinths in the kitchen.  They’re blooming next to Quackers – a birthday present from a very good friend – as he sits on top of the bowl of fresh eggs. (Smile No 1)

Flora took refuge under a large shrub for most of the morning in the downpours, but by this afternoon when I came home from work, the skies were blue, with wispy clouds skudding across.  Quacking greeted me as she waddled up the garden to meet me – lore’ love-a-duck! (Smile No 2)

Daffodils – my country’s emblem flower – remind me of my home in Wales. (Smile No 3)

Happy Days …

Bloomin' lovely!

    I love that little duck! Pauli’s mother (Pauli is my current golden in case you don’t recall) had one just like that. It may still be around here somewhere, I periodically hide the old toys and then bring them out later. Your photo made ME smile. 🙂 The weather here this week is awful (esp for S. FL). It is cold for us (48 F when I got up, that is about 8.9 C) when I took the dog out this morning and now it’s very windy (16 mph now, but gusts up to 26) and then it will get colder tonight. OK, yes it’s winter, but this is FLORIDA! LOL So, thank you for the daffodils. They are a favorite of mine. I used to have some in my garden in TX. Yours are lovely!

    Oh, what great memories for me to see your sweet quacker! We raised ducks several years ago, Mallards, Pekins, Goldens, Indian Runners and Black Cayugas! I miss all their funny antics. Our grandkids just loved them. Thanks for a sweet post reading made me long for the old days! Hugs, Kim C ^i^
