Weird weather this year. They look so alone and vulnerable -

Sharon said...

Oh my gosh, it's just as hard for the flora as it is for the fauna out there Brattcat, at least you have this image to immortalize their short lived beauty.

i hope the weather is kind to these sweet yellow blooms; it is confounding all of us.

Bought my first daffodils the other day.

Then daffodils became icy bells, and rang to tell their sadness..

My comment is going to sound very down to earth after Malyss' delightful one... This happened here in January, the daffodils were beginning to bloom (much too early) and then we had severe frost at night. But they made it!

Oh, no! A blanket please, a blanket . . .

Ooh, dark. It sounds like shrouded, inexorable Death is about to take his scythe to the flowerbed.

These guys are usually very good at dealing with surprise cold snaps.

Thérèse said...

Daffodils time! Hoping for more to pop up...

Oh no, I hope they survive... they can be hardy in the face of cold. I finished OotD, an amazing and brilliant story :^)
