043- Daffodil Shoots

Today dawned snowy but is was short lived. It made it all the way up to 49 degrees this afternoon. As I sit here in my playroom I'm watching that soft golden light fade fast as the sun sinks behind West Mountain and the temperature drops.

Just a few minutes ago I had a little walk-about looking for those signs of spring that I long for. I've been waiting for this sign featured here today! My daffodils are shooting up through the frost-heaved ground. I just love the look of the dirt all pock-marked after the snow finally melts.

Gordon told me earlier that today the only state in 50 that didn't have snow on the ground is Florida... so much for global warming!

I love your search for Spring signs, Joanie! How sweet!
Have you noticed that the sun is going down in a different place too? That is what got me through winter a year or so ago -- watching the progress of the sun along the mountains when it came up and went down. Gives me HOPE!
