It’s officially, 100%, completely, totally springtime here in the Pacific Northwest. That means two things:
- I’ve started taking allergy medication again, yet still spend every morning sneezing and sniffling.
The daffodils are blooming, and I’m so excited! We planted a big bag of bulbs in the fall, and I wasn’t sure if they’d come up this year, so I was just thrilled when they started peeking through the dirt about a month ago. They’re really going to town now, our yard if full of the cheerful little guys. (Full disclosure, the photo is our neighbors’ yard, because they have even more daffodils than us, and it makes for a much more impressive picture. #goals) I’ve filled our house with cut flowers (which is delightful, but is probably what’s making me sneeze all over the place).
If you love daffodils as much as I do (and if you’re more logical about your allergies than I am), maybe you’ll want to get cracking on some daffodil-themed knitting.
This adorably accurate daffodil is too cute for words! Can you imagine making a whole bouquet of these bad boys?
