A Day Brightener

Lately, we have been faced with what seems to be a never-ending parade of day-after-day dreary and chilly days! Plus, here on the plains, it hasn't really greened-up a whole lot yet. Where, oh where, are the sunny and warm days that the arrival of spring should bring?

Isn't it amazing how sunshine can improve a person's mood?

Hey, I'm not asking for 60-degree temps here -- just seeing the sun out again would be an incredible boost and day brightener.

So, having been in a bit of a funk lately, I decided to buy myself some flowers.

There were so many to pick from at our new Trader Joe's -- love, love, love their flowers.

And daffodils really say "spring" to me.

How about you? What's your favorite spring flower?

I love, love, love your new flowers! I haven't been to Trader Joe's yet, but I heard they have fabulous food and flowers! I am ready for the gerbera daisies!

Looking forward to nicer weather this weekend!

P.S. Carson survived his First Confession tonight! It was very sweet.

It is so funny that you posted this tonight, I just stopped at the grocery tonight and bought some tulips.

Your flowers are beautiful. Like you, it's going to a long time before West MI has anything green outside. I'm addicted to fresh flowers from our grocery store. Right now, I have yellow tulips on our mantle.

Flowers are lovely!! So sorry you all have had such a harsh winter... even in the south it has been rainy and dreary!! Time for some sun.

We are in the same boat. We so long for warm, sunny days. We want every patch of snow to be gone and sun, sun, sunny days. :)
I love all flowers, and I don't even know if I could pick a favorite. I will say tulips. I think I like them more each spring.

Oooo, I love daffodils too! And ranunculus, and tulips! I think flowers are a necessity. Like milk and bread. Your little granddaughter (and of course Maddie!) is so adorable. I am excited to hold my little grandson. Happy Spring! May it come soon!

Oh the post winter early spring dreary days-nothing worse as far as I am concerned! Fresh flowers always brighten my day! My favorite spring flower hands down is Lily of The Valley! Once I see them coming up I know spring is really here. I love the scent as well as how pretty they are! Here's to warmer,sunnier days!
