Daffodils – A Symbol of New Beginnings by Ashu Chawla
I love the yellow trumpet-shaped daffodils that announce the return of spring each year. My husband and I often visit different gardens and farms to admire the flowers, to sense their aromas, to be in the moment with their transient beauty. I feel this bright yellow shrub literally screams “Springtime!” and No spring is complete without capturing them! They appear in spite of come-and-go frosts and freezes. Long lasting and very fragrant.
