Yoohoo!!!! Daffodils getting ready to bloom in my garden!!!!
The bright yellow trumpets make me happy, but so do these buds. I know they will bloom soon, well, March. Whenever they bloom, I'm happy to see them!!!
Did you know that daffodils are in the same family as onions and garlic and Easter lilies? It's true! Liliaceae is the family name, and the family contains onions, garlic, lilies, and trillium. Or is the plural Trillia? Whatever. Daffodils are also in the Lily family. What great relatives. I love them all.
If you turn left when you leave the neighborhood, on your way to Blairsville, then right onto Moccasin Church Road, you'll see Daffodil Hill on the left. I love that there are so many of them all on that little hill.
I hope you have daffodils in your garden, or at least in your travels.
