Daffodils in Winter

You see them available for sale in the market, banks and home improvement stores in January. Closed pale cream buds on slender green stems held together ten in a bunch by a rubber band. Daffodils in winter make me happy. My husband knows that roses don’t impress me on Valentine’s Day as much as daffodils in winter do. The first organic vibrant yellow light that emanates from daffodils in my home is such a moral booster.photograph of daffodils

In this cold season
when ice on the river cracks
yellow buds bring hope.
– L.M. Gildersleeve

I pose the flowers in full bloom in various vases for effect. Dark colored backdrops make the blooms glow brightly. Daffodils create a showcase as beautiful as any painting would do and I enjoy capturing daffodils in winter.photograph of daffodils in bloom

“She turned to the sunlight
And shook her yellow head,
And whispered to her neighbor:
“Winter is dead.”
-A. A. Milne

“The flowers of late winter and early spring occupy places in our hearts
well out of proportion to their size.” ~Gertrude S. Wister
