My husband's flowers arrived last week. Being so close to valentine's day, they were very pink (with some white thrown in). It was a lovely bouquet with lillies, roses, and daisies.
Yesterday, an Alberta Clipper rolled through and gave us a mix of snow and rain. It left some nice droplets on the bare trees.
I also had a bouquet of daffodils. I tried photographing them against a black background. I don't think the camera can distinguish the details in the yellow on such a dark background. I did notice today while I was walking that some daffodils were near blooming in down town DC. Of course, they are near a warm building facing south. I'm certain it will be weeks before we see them in my yard. But I think this means spring is coming... in spite of yesterday's snow and today's blustery winds.
