I am sooo ready to stick a daffodil under my nose and sniff deeply! It's one of my most favorite fragrances. And daffodils are such a sure sign of spring.

The ground is still wet from the melting snow and there still are some stubborn bits of snow lingering in parking lots, but spring is near.

You can smell that earthy smell of spring. The birds are flocking and singing and flying and nesting. The tree buds are plumping up. And there is just a general feeling in the air that spring is going to spring very soon.

I think we all have a little seasonal affect disorder that looms during the winter months. It magnifies the impact of spring's approach for everyone. People come out of their houses more and walk their dogs longer. Neighbors are more likely to exchange a nod or wave and a smile.

I can't help it. Spring makes me feel young again because it takes me back to the carefree days of youth and the joy of watching the daffodils and honeysuckle bloom.

Life is good today!


  1. "Spring makes me feel young" -- you nailed it, Grace. It makes me feel young too, it makes me feel brand new.

  2. It's lovely in Oklahoma, as well. My daffodils are up about 6" and ready to bloom....can't wait!

  3. I can't believe I have followers and actual comments! Thanks Agnes and Tillie!!!

  4. I like spring too all the pretty bulbs are so cheerful.
    I was intrigued by the NZ on your name, I thought maybe you were also from New Zealand. But no, maybe it is your real name.
