Spring in New England: Daffodils are blooming along the banks of the Charles River (and Youth Fours are busily rowing up and down its length)
Happy little Iris danfordiae are in flower.
You have to go nose to nose with them to see their lovely sprinkle of freckles. And who isn't cheered by freckles?
A ring of sunny pansies rims the planter on my front steps.
In my backyard, yellows that remain in bud are forthysia and narcissi. Spring is on its way!
