The promise of spring

Ah, the blessings of another beautiful day. Temperatures warmed so I ventured outside this afternoon to replenish bird baths, refill feeders, and water plants. I just happened to think about checking on the daffodils, which grow along an old falling-down fence on our adjacent lot. Sure, enough, they're already busting up through the soil! In a few weeks, they'll be blooming.

They're not native, of course, but they've been residents here at the Pink House longer than I have. The former owners, the Bendeles, must have planted the bulbs years and years ago. We're only the second family to ever live in this little house, which was built sometime around 1956.
