A Taste of Spring

IMG_5193

While the North thaws out from the minus fifty+ wind chills of a week ago, The South East enjoyed the warm air flowing up from the Gulf Of Mexico. My daffodils had heads on them for the past two weeks. The burst of warm air caused many of them to bloom. It is a wonderful taste of spring in the middle of winter! Today the cold weather is back and the daffodils will feel the chill!

Winter’s not over // today

This Haibun is for Frank Tassone’s Haikai challenge to write a poem about “first spring gust”. We were gone the beginning of the week and when we came home on Wednesday, we were greeted by smiling daffodils blooming. Spring is just around the corner!

  1. The weather these days is apparently really strange, the winter hasn’t gone completely and the spring is right around the corner, the mornings and evenings in place are shivering while during the afternoon it’s quite warm.
    The spring flowers haven’t bloomed here yet.
    But your picture is really beautiful.
