Daffodil, February 22, 2016

Prentiss County, Mississippi, USA, February 19, 2016

My Daffodils are a bit late this year. I have had blooms as early as January 29 (2013)
and January 31 (2012). Last year (2015) the first bloom was on February 9.
It is still Winter here, but Spring is coming!

If you are wondering about Daffodil blooms in 2014, I was diagnosed with Leukemia in February, and lost half a year to hospital stays, chemo treatments, and recovery in a rehabilitation facility. I am very thankful to be able to report that my most recent blood
counts are very near normal for the first time in two years.

Praise the Lord! His mercies are new every morning!

Have a wonderful week!

  7. Your daffodil is lovely, Lea, and it's great to hear about your healing, words from my mother's favorite hymn.

  11. In school we had to learn the poem 'Daffodils', without ever seeing them in real life! They are beautiful.

  13. Beautiful daffodil, none in site in my area yet. Wonderful news for you on your tests. I recently lost a close friend to Leukemia. She was hoping for a stem cell transplant but developed an infection and was just too sick. Blessings.

  15. Thank you for your visit and comment/ You are the first person that 'speaks' on this new sky and field blog I started. The fields behind our house are rather decorative, so I will document them throughout the year.
    It is so nice to see the daffs out early.Congrats with the good news. I'm awaiting mine: fingers crossed.

  18. I'm so happy for the good health news! Hooray!!!!! And even without that great reason for celebrating, daffodils always make me so happy. Even pictures of them (and that is good, because they don't grow here in Florida, sadly. Too hot I guess). And of course by the time we get back across the country they are all done blooming. My daughter keeps me posted on what's happening in Oregon and this time of year I really really really miss it!
