Nature's Ultrasound..

 What a beautiful thing nature is. To see inside the leaves of a Daffodil growing, waiting to burst open as spring arrives leaving winter behind.
 Soaking up water as it grows.
 Fair Daffodil's we weep to see
You haste away to soon.
As yet the early-rising sun
Has not attained his noon.
To Daffodils, Herrick

Shirley,
Your blog is going to turn into a Photography blog before you know it, as you are taking the most beautiful pictures lately. I have always loved daffodils. They are a glorious flower. The yellow in your post just brightened my day a bit.

Have a good weekend, Shirley.

Love,

Oh, Shirley, sweet friend, I love daffodils, no flower more cheerful in the spring than a daffodil. It is so exciting to see the flower forming inside!! The mystery of God's handiwork. Wishing you a blessed and happy weekend! Thank you for making me smile with a visit to my Bunny Cottage~ Vicki p.s. I, too, love that picture of the old-fashioned clothespin and clothesline. Lots of memories there!
