That come before the swallow dares, and take
The winds of March with beauty."

I didn't know that daffodils were a flower of march, but last week a neighbour gave me some, that grew in her garden. They were beautiful!

That is such a beautiful quote from one of the most brilliant writers of history, who in fact shares my birthday!!! April 23...Shakespeare, Shirley Temple and ME! Those gorgeous flowers are brave and wonderful; ushering in spring with courage in the winds of transition...lovely as ever dearest!
