Yellow trumpet tall and still,
The daffodil tells me it’s Spring,
Jump in the air, and dance, and sing.
– Daffodil Song
Growing up in Raincouver you get used to there rain, in fact there are days I miss it if it has not rained in awhile. I love hearing it tap on the window, and see it splashing into the puddles that have formed on the ground. We recently got to take some photos at a daffodil farm. I still cannot thank Codi (Creative Wife & Joyful Worker) enough for making this opportunity happen and welcoming us in the group that got to check out the daffodils at her in-laws farm. It was the perfect combination of light rainfall, and bright yellow spring flowers. Some of the photos that came out of this visit are forever favourites of mine that I plan to print and put up around our home.
Thanks to the rain the girls cute matching outfits couldn’t be shown off in the photos but that is okay. Things do not always go as planned. Addie ended up being bundled up in The Cece wrap from Beluga Baby, that is the perfect matching daffodil yellow. I had a bit of a mom fail moment and forget Evie’s rain coat… oops! She was still happy to wander around thanks to our blue umbrella. It was a little muddy, but that’s what boots are for.
The daffodil is one of my favourite Spring time flowers. It reminds me of my childhood and seeing them pop up in our yard this time of year. They apparently symbolize rebirth, and new beginnings. I’d always see these flowers at Easter time, and at church. They are said to represent eternal life because they are perennial flower. Appearing again year, after year.
This will be a day that I always remember, who knows if we will ever have an opportunity to wander a field full of beautiful, bright yellow daffodils. Spring is here, and boy were we ready for it!
