The First Daffodils of Spring

A world of grief and pain:
Flowers bloom;
Even then.....
- Issa





...my soul is downcast within me.
Yet this I call to mind and therefore I have hope:
Because of the LORD's great love we are not consumed,
for his compassions never fail.
They are new every morning;
great is your faithfulness.
I say to myself, "The LORD is my portion;
therefore I will wait for him."

The LORD is good to those whose hope is in him,
to the one who seeks him;
it is good to wait quietly
for the salvation of the LORD.
- Lamentation 3:20 - 26

We saw daffodils at Max Valu in the morning and I sent Mary back for a pot and told her to take a photo. She took a lot of really good photos but this one with the daffodils at dusk was my favorite.

So yes, it is a new photo and no, the daffodils are not blooming in the garden yet.

(However, we did find a little yellow-orange rose blooming when the snow melted. I should have Mary take a photo of that!)
