Daffodils: They Live!

 Last summer a sweet lady gave me a couple sacks of daffodil bulbs.


 I was so grateful that she thought of giving me the bulbs that she was thinning out of her flower beds.


I planted them in my garden and gave them plenty of water.


The leaves shriveled up right away, due to the shock, and I had no way of knowing if the bulbs below were still alive.


I kept the place where I had planted the bulbs watered, and hoped that I would find shoots in the spring.

Today I went to check on them. 


It looks like they are all coming up! I am so grateful! Daffodils are my favorite early spring bloom. I feel so blessed, first, to be given such a generous amount of bulbs, and second, that they survived the transplanting and the winter. I can't wait to see their blossoms in the near future!

How exciting! I still don't know what kind of flowers that we have coming up alongside the house here, but they are growing very well, and hopefully it won't be long before they bloom! :)

How exciting! I'm glad they are coming up for you; I love seeing new growth in the spring! :) Bulbs are great in that you don't have to replant every year, or worry about caring for them too much. Our yard has a ton of lilies planted by the previous owner, and the blooms usually start late May- something I really look forward too! :)
