The daffodils are beginning to bloom. These are planted next to a wall facing south, the rest -- in the lawn, along other walls, in the flowerbeds -- are still just budding. With easter being so late this year, the daffodils are just in time for the holiday.
And a close-up. It was a bit windy today, making it hard to take pics as the flowers aren't still. So I don't have that many photos. Besides, the best pics are yet to come when all the daffodils in the lawn bloom.
And what happened when I was sitting there in front of the daffodils, back against the world? Why, Mimi suddenly appeared. Being in one of her cuddly moods, she still soon abandoned me to investigate the scent around us: while focusing on the daffodils I'd forgotten the chives and crushing their hollow stalks, they released a somewhat intense aroma.
