Spring!

Today is celebrated by two important events:

#1: Today is the first day of Spring. The daffodils have been blooming at my house for nearly 3 weeks.


#2: Today is my son-in-law, Jason Hache's birthday .






Happy Birthday Jason! Thanks for being the best husband my baby girl, Beka, could have. You are also an awesome father to my Minn. grandbabies!
Here is another shot of some of the daffodils. In Northern California we never quite know when they will begin to bloom. I've had them as early as January 3 (my birthday) and as late as April 1 to begin to bloom. This year even the green spears were late in popping through the soil, but they began to flower right away. So far 3 weeks of flowers and counting.
I've got several hundred daffodils in the garden. My favorite flower. Occasionally Sydney picks one for me but generally I like to leave them in the ground as they'll last nearly a month in the garden. Of all the Azaleas and Rhododendrons I have in the garden, only one has a lone blossom on it.

So smile a little, enjoy the Spring and Happy Birthday Jason!
