New Life –

Daffodils burst from gracious earth

Golden in their splendour

Spilling their joy

– Spring Lives

  1. I love this. I always feel my spirits lift when I see the first daffodils and always have them in the house until they disappear from the shops! I love to see the first snowdrops bravely push their heads through too
