These delightful daffodils are growing in our neighbours' tree!  Even though it is unseasonably cold here this year, the daffs know it is springtime and are happily blooming.  The first year we saw this, there was only one spindly flower that we never thought it would make another year, but each spring brings more blooms and the daffodils are flourishing.   We figure that one of our pesky, bulb-eating squirrels had stashed the bulb in the tree for a later snack, forgot about it and there was enough bits of soil to get it going.  I always look forward to spring and to the beauty that it brings.  Have a wonderful day!

'I can't know, only you can,
What makes my heart laugh,
 This branch of flowers
 Shaking in your wind.'   Rumi



  1. Great photograph, Rhonda. So happy there are blooms all around you.

  2. I've never seen daffodils growing in a tree before but they look beautifully. I bet if you tried to plant them there they wouldn't grow!!
    I hope you get some warmer weather soon.
