Spring Daffodils

Spring is not yet sprung and yesterday's marvelous weather was followed by today's temps down to freezing. West of us they are getting snow, and it may arrive on our doorstep soon. This morning I put on a good windbreaker and cut some of my Mount Hood daffodils. I figure they will look much prettier in the living room than under freezing rain and snow. I really like the white of the Mount Hood.

Most of my daffs are all or part yellow. A bouquet of the yellow/whites (sorry, I don't know their name) sits on the bathroom counter where the mirror serves to double the view!

I find that daffodils multiply and look more lovely each year. I don't have the same good luck with tulips so from now on I'll be investing my bulb budget on daffodils.

The daffodils are really pretty, which balances out the ugliness of the crooks. I don't understand why people do things like that.

In answer to your question on my blog, yes I really do wear my hand knit socks with shoes. I can't compare today's sock yarn with that of the past, since I've only been a knitter for 5 years. Though, I can say I haven't worn a hole in any of my socks yet (even the 100% merino ones) and I wear them often.
