Favorite Things Friday

Time again for Favorite Things Friday Ms. P. over at Quilting in my Pyjamas.

This week - my favorite thing is something so simple.  Something that only comes around once a year, but signifies the beginning of spring for me.  I'm elated when they start showing up, and sad when they are gone.

It's - Daffodils!

What's not to love about these?  They are bright and sunny, and a sure sign that spring is here (or almost, at least!)

I love driving down the road, and seeing these grow wild.  It really makes me want to stop and grab a handful to fill a vase.  (Yes, yes, I know it's wrong, and I won't really do it, but that doesn't stop me from wanting to!)

So that's my FTF this week.   What's your favorite flower or sign of spring???

I love Daffodils too...they always make me smile!

As soon as my cherry tree starts up with the blossom , I know Spring isnt far away. Poor tree is about to dump it's leaves so we wont have blossom for ages yet!

Thanks for popping in to FTF this week AMW!

Your daffodils are lovely. They haven't started showing up here yet, but I'm ready for them!

Lovely daffodils, so bright and sunny.
We don't really have spring here, but if we did hyacinths are my favourite.

I planted tulips at the cottage. When I see them come up, I know that spring is finally here. The daffies are so bright aren't they?
I love yellow so I should plant them for next spring.
