Newest Daffodil

This is one of the latest daffodil’s to bloom. It is more of a cream on cream and does not have that typical cup center. I love how frilly the petals are on this!

I have one more that is in heavy bud stage that has yet to bloom, but I’m thinking it is still several days away before it finally opens. All my others look like they only have a few more days before their blooms start to die back. Some are already losing some of their shape and the edges are beginning to curl.

I may have a small gap in time where I don’t have anything new blooming so I may have to get creative with my photos in about a week or so. Then again, so much can change in that week, so maybe I’ll be pleasantly surprised and proven wrong. Wouldn’t that be nice?

Open Windows & Peachy Daffodil

It is an absolutely beautiful day today and I get to open my windows for the first time this year. I also managed to get an okay shot of my peach daffodil, though it is really windy, so it isn’t great. It’s good enough for you to see how different it is from the traditional cup center you often see with daffodils.

This might technically be a double because of the multi layered petals. It sort of reminds me of my dwarf daylilies.

If the day continues to be this gorgeous, I might have to try and take a walk. When I was outside getting these photos, it seemed like everyone that lives here and then some were out doing just that, so I’ll have to see.

I’m hoping for an equally pretty sunset. I’d figured out a perfect place to try and get some amazing shots a while ago, but haven’t had the opportunity to get out and test it out, either because of weather or timing. I might just be able to pull it off if the sky decides to cooperate with me.

Yellow And White Daffodil

This is one of the daffodil’s that looks a little unusual. It doesn’t have that cup like center shape, but looks more like layered petals instead. I really wish I remembered what I picked out when I bought these or had a photo to reference because I really don’t remember these being so different. My other one is kind of similar, but with slightly different colors.

Daffodils And A Bear Hunt

I finally have some daffodils blooming. At the moment, I have three different ones, but I think I have a couple more that are trying to pop as well. This one looks to be the most traditional looking one so far. The other two are very different. I’ll try to get some photos later today of those if the sun would ever decide to come out.

There are all kinds of stories going around about various different neighborhoods, groups, or individuals doing things to help entertain their neighbors right now. One of the things that I’d seen was directed more towards little kids. They were calling it a bear hunt. Residents would put some sort of bear (stuffed or other) in a window where it could be seen from the outside. When the kids would go for a walk, they could hunt for the bears in the windows.

My neighborhood decided to do one as we have a lot of grade school age kids that live around here. I’m a huge bear fan and Hubby has gotten me a few really fun ones over the years, so I decided to share the one that would be most easily seen. My giant one. He kind of takes up the whole window (not that is is a huge window).

It was just a really simple thing to do and the little kids can have a fun activity that doesn’t require any interaction with other people. I thought it was cute and fun. Now I have a bear hanging out in my window waving at anyone that walks by.

I will say, it is a bit disturbing to see it up there at night. I guess older teenagers and adults can play along and find a way to give it a creepy feel as it looks a little deranged staring out at you in the dark.
