A First Bouquet of Spring...For You...

I wanted to share these as a "thank you" for your kind wishes for my father today...it meant so much to me. His surgery went very well, and he's comfortable at home tonight--my sister is visiting with him this evening. His doctor said that "he's a very sweet gentleman who's also very strong inside", but my father said he's just a "tough old Marine." :)

While spending time with my father at his home late this afternoon, I noticed that the daffodils were blooming all along his fence line. He and my DH were watching something on TV, so I went out and gathered a bunch for my father, and one for our home. There are still a lot to enjoy in his garden. It is amazing how quickly they multiply; they were only planted a few years ago, and there are so many of them now. I wish that you could smell them...they have that lemony, clean aroma that fills the air as you walk by them. Spring can't be far behind!


I hope that you are having a good week so far. Thank you again for your thoughtfulness~

The daffodils are beautiful and a sure sign of spring. They're always such a welcome sight in their bright yellow gowns.

nice post today, and glad to hear your father is doing well... my grandpa was in the marines for 27 years, and my grandma could show you that the marine's wives were tough 'old broads' too!

These flowers are full of life. They are pretty and just the kind of thing perhaps your father would love to have.

I'm behind in my visits, Andrea! I didn't know your dad had surgery! It's good to hear it went well.

The daffies look so pretty in the blue and white.
