Day 1 of the A to Z Challenge!!!

Awesome Daffodils
 March 31, 2016
I will be posting a new photo ideally
taken the day before.
I live up in the mountains of
Northern California just 70 miles
south of the Oregon border.
This photo shows all the daffodils our
neighbor cut for us as we walked her property before having a lovely dinner.
See you tomorrow!
And if you want to sign up and play along
it's not too late! Just go to this LINK!


  1. There is something special about the humble daffodil. Sunshine on a stem! Looking forward to seeing your pictures.

  10. Such beauties! Those would be welcome decor in the humblest home or grandest palace.

  11. Those daffodils are beautiful! Thanks for visiting me in the A to Z Challenge :)

  12. I'm in Northern California, too, but several hours south of you. And you're right, the daffodils are gorgeous! Maybe a little too pretty... my 3 yro couldn't resist picking a few. At least it was from her own garden and not the ones at the school. :)

    No worries on Google+, you really aren't missing much. Here's my link:

I love comments and will attempt to reply to each one. However, lately I have been getting "Unknown" comments that are linked to some sort of web page. I will never open this sort of comment and will immediately mark as spam. I am not interested in opening something that could be detrimental to my blog security etc. Never have enjoyed hackers!
