Welsh rain and daffodils

January view from my window  SOOC Sunday
I love Winter... long evenings by the log burner and snowy days. However, there always comes a point in January when I find myself eagerly awaiting the first signs of Spring. As I'm currently at that stage, and as there aren't m/any signs of Spring around here at the minute I was delighted to see the first bunches of daffodils in my local shop. 

Macro Monday daffodil for Lisa's Chaos
The label says grown in the UK.... maybe in a parallel universe! (or a polytunnel)

  1. DAFFODILS!! I live for the daffodils. When I get in a long and low slump, a friend of mine emails me a giant photograph of a daffodil.

    I love the view out your window -- that green-looking grass is balm for my no-grass-anywhere spirit. :)

  2. Love the view from you window. I bet the daffodils were grown in a greenhouse. They're lovely.

  3. The blossoms certainly remind me of spring!

    It's WAY to early for me to long for spring. January is the coldest month of the year with February a close second. The end of March is when I dare to hope for spring. :)

  7. Everyone here in the North East of the USA is waiting for these little gems to pop up through the cold ground. They are a sure sign of Spring n warmer weather.

  8. We are deep into winter here in Canada too. Like you, I saw some spring flowers at the local grocery store last week. I would have purchased some but I am allergic. Yours look so pretty!

  12. Hi Pip, I popped over to your blog after ordering my sock wool and have come back to leave a comment. I love the daffodils - just what we need to cheer us up in this weather. Maybe they were grown in the Scilly Isles - I know their season is much earlier than ours. The sock wool I got from you a couple of weeks ago has been very popular - theo balls are currently being knitted into socks for 'blog friends' and I have just started the third pair as a prize for a giveaway - that pair will be off to Canada! Regards, Anne Donald

  14. I'm a bit tired of winter myself. It's a joy to see these daffodils blooming even if they're in a pot!

  15. I'm with you there. The winter blues have set in early this year for me. Those daffodils are very cherry.
