I just realized that I hvaen't been getting my Daily Respites for a while now - did anything change on your side, Clara, or do I need to go hunting down a fix? <3

Fantastic❣️🤣🤣🤣 I just love that kind of surprise. Daffodils are especially good at showing up unexpectedly!

For their 35th anniversary, a friend designed a needlepoint triptych of symbols of their lives as well as each of their four children. For them, there were two clocks, marked his and hers. His was set to 3:10 and hers to 2:55. They loved it.

I don't think I've ever seen a daffodil that color! It's beautiful!

I’m thinking these late bloomers are the ones who have had some experience with your Spring! It seems safer to open your little delicates petals a bit late so as to miss the occasional surprise un-Spring weather.

Late arrival means the blooming season continues. Reminds me of my parents. My Mom had to be at the train station at least a half hour early. My Dad wasn’t happy unless he jumped aboard the train as the Conductor hollered “All aboard.” There was at least on trip where it didn’t work!

I always love the late bloomers. When the basswood trees start blooming, I always wait for one small basswood tree near my work that manages to bloom after all the others are done. She is the Late Bloomer.💖😌

They were preparing their petticoats. I've never seen that lovely pinkish center before!

(Generous with an ulterior motive - I'm also trying to prevent myself from eating the entire cake!)
