This morning my daughter and I walked down to the old farm next door to gather daffodils. Like a lot of old farms around here, daffodils were planted as borders for walkways, fence lines, and flower beds. Even though the tenants have been long gone, these tireless harbingers continue to their work, announcing the approach of spring.
Lovely yellow and green! What a welcoming sight after a long, colorless winter.
The farm is "next door" which in the country means about a 5 minute walk down the road. Of course, taking a walk down the road also means all three dogs MUST go with us. Try and leave them in the house while you go for a walk and they'll try to guilt you with their pathetic howls. It's really quite funny and quite loud!
Cooper, the Schneagle (part Beagle and part Schnauzer), being the adolescent that he is, always has to be first at everything...first out the door, first in the door, first to eat...and today first to get to the farm house. Here he is patiently waiting for the rest of us to catch up. Such a goofball. He definitely keeps us entertained.
Here's a sneak peak at the daffodils. I'll post more about the daffodils and shamrocks tomorrow!
Thanks for stopping by and God bless!
