April showers do bring May flowers, but I have plenty of blossoms in my northern garden already. I must confess to having a love affair with daffodils. I have early, mid, and late blooming ones plus mini and full size, yellow and white.🌼 My crocuses and snowdrops break through the wintry landscape first, but it’s the daffodils that win my heart every year with their happy flowers that sway in the breeze. Winter’s wickedness played an April Fool’s Day joke this year and sent a coating of snow, but the sunshine soon melted the snow and restored the daffodils to their brilliance.🌞
When we dug up a flower bed last summer, I salvaged the daffodil bulbs by putting them in the legs of a pair of pantyhose and storing them in a dry place until fall when I replanted them. They have graciously come up this spring. I’m delighted to see them since to me daffodils are always the promise of sunshine and better weather ahead.💛
My love for daffodils inspired the cover for one of my contemporary romances—Swayed by You. The other two books in the series have pretty yellow flowers on the covers, too, but I must confess it’s the daffodils that I can’t resist. In the spirit of the season, Swayed by You is on sale for $.99 on Amazon, and it’s available free to users of Kindle Unlimited.
