Love the creativity, in both the poem and photography.
In the second photo, there is a tear on the trumpet because its sound is muffled by the snow.
I wasn’t going to include that photo until I saw that – very kind comment : ) thanks! K
Hi. There is something wonderful about those tough little leaves and buds poking through hard earth and snow to get to the light! I like the idea of the sound being muffled…Jane
It is our first daf of the season – always happy to see these harbingers of spring! K
Wonderful image of the bright yellow flower, likened to a trumpet in its heralding of spring, and I smile at the thought of the sound of the trumpet temporarily muffled by the cold, but will not be silenced for long! 🙂 Loved this, Kathleen! Dee
Spring is right around the corner – always makes me happy to see the daffodils in bloom – thanks, Dee! K
