First Daffodils in Dallas

rebirth?, originally uploaded by jypsygen.

Who would ever guess that daffodils and bricks make for such a cool composition? We love the light on the bricks, and the intimacy of the daffodils and the middle brick.

The photographer Jen R tells us: Yes, this is our yard; We just blew the mounds of fallen leaves off, and there they were. The flowers here always seem to think a little too early on that it's time to come up, which isn't strange considering the day after Christmas, Dallas hit a record high of 83. We don't know how long these guys will last, though, since no one can predict the weather in Dallas: "If you don't like the weather, just wait a couple of hours." Barring any potential cold snaps, they should do well, since they are on the south side. Let's hope they make it, so I might have a better photo to offer for your unique blog!
