A Wayback Search for Floral Sunshine

Filed under: Folkcat's Fotos,Wayback Wednesday — folkcat at 4:19 pm on Friday, April 27, 2007

Another gray, cold, rainy day here. Usually, New Hampshire at this point in the spring is filled with blossoming shrubbery, trees, and flowers. This year, the warm sunny days have been so outnumbered that I haven’t seen much for floral relief yet.

I took a dip in the Wayback Machine, and found this picture I took on April 27, 2000 – exactly seven years ago today. Oh, what a difference!

Daffodils, 4/27/2000

The apartment we lived in at the time was of the in-law variety, attached to a 300-year-old farmhouse in the middle of fields and surrounded by woods. The landlord’s wife planted many, many daffodils along one of the original stone walls.

I hope that we eventually see some blooms this year. In the meantime, I’m glad to have this photo to remember past springs by. In fact, I think I’ll make it my desktop for a while.

You all keep warm and sunny thoughts in your hearts and minds this weekend, okay? I’ll try to do the same!

I firmly believe that the months are behind themselves this year. April is March, March was Feb, Feb was Jan…and so on. Spring is finally coming to life here at the Jersey Shore, but taking her sweet time. I wish you sunshine! There’s a pretty primrose on my blog today, it cheered me.
