Sunlit Sunday... The First


Can Spring be far away? 
The very first daffodil!
This is the only bloom in the garden right now, 
but there are lots  more to come. 
Anxiously awaiting!

Please visit My Little Home and Garden 
and the other participants for 
Sunlit Sunday. 
Thanks to Karen for hosting. 
Hope you enjoy your visits to lots of sunlit places!

Thanks for stopping by. 
I am a bit early to the party this week. 
On Sunday off to visit the son and daughter-in-love.
I appreciate your visits and comments!
Have a wonderful week filled with 
good people, 
sweet moments, 
lots of smiles,
and much love!

  3. Hi Susan,

    Your one and only yellow daffodil is definitely enough to let us know that spring is, indeed on the way!

    Have a lovely week ahead!

  4. Your one and only daffodil has brought a smile to my face today. I can hardly wait for the snow to clear in a couple of months and see mine emerging from the soil.

  5. Judith, who commented above, and I live in the same province so I can appreciate her remark about "a couple of months". Meanwhile, it will be fun seeing your garden emerge from its winter slumber.

    Yellow always strikes me as a happy colour and the daffodil is beautiful. One solitary bloom can be truly appreciated, Susan.

    Enjoy your Sunday with family.

  8. I laughed at your title, The First. My daffodils have come and gone and yesterday I found one last little daffodil hiding in a planter.

  21. There is something so special about the first daffodil.

    We had summer from June through November and went right to spring with no winter. My daffodils have come and gone and new flowers are blooming each day. I don't know what to expect in March when spring really arrives.

    1. Carol...last year we went from Winter to Summer with little Spring; however, I will not complain if that is the case this year. Winter has been a fickle time this year! Enjoy what ever March brings!

  22. Hello Susan,

    There is nothing which cheers the heart so much as the first sight of a daffodil after winter. So lovely to capture the moment since it does make one believe that all is well with the world.

    Thank you for the kind comment on our post. It is good to be back.

    Wishing you a happy weekend!

  23. When I see daffodils here in Canada it is definitely spring! So I'm thinking spring has already arrived in your world. ;))

    1. Just a teaser...rain today and cold temperatures tonight and tomorrow. Fortunately, the daffodils don't mind a bit of chilly weather!
