Pheasant’s Eye Narcissus


Pheasant’s Eye Narcissus

I am posting this as a sign of hope for this spring. It was taken April 24th, 2004 with my 4MP Nikon 4300. This is one of my favorite Daffodils and in the scope of the Estate’s Daffodil collection blooms fairly late. I am going to try and shoot a few more daffodil pictures this spring as I noticed I don't have that many in the library. Each spring there are about 10,000 Daffs at work.

We got another dusting of snow last night, which was something I could have done without. There is 2 to 4 inches predicted for Friday night now. There is a glimmer of hope for next week with some milder temperatures.

Someone asked about Molly in the comments section yesterday. She has had a little setback as a large section of skin lost blood flow during the operation and has turned a disgusting shade of purple. It is oozing a little fluid also. I am taking her back to the vet to get her stitches out and have the doctor look at the skin patch. It is confirmed that she has cancer and a very bad type. We took her to a specialist this week but there is nothing they can do until her side heals. There are several treatments available but we won’t which is best until her side gets better.

beautiful daffodil. I'm sorry to hear about your dog. It's sad when the animals we love get these horrible diseases that are so deadly. Wishing you luck.

I'm sorry to hear the diagnosis for Molly.

I look forward to seeing your spring blooms. We have snow in the forecast for tonight too.
