Daffodil Buds: The Sixth Flower of Spring!

Daffodil Buds: The Sixth Flower of Spring!
In case you didn't read this in an earlier posting, I decided to have a counting of each kind of flower that I find on our property this spring! I saw the first flower about three weeks ago, and it's the smallest flower too! Next I found a little white flower that looks ready for a mouse's wedding bouquet! Number three is the crocus flowers that have popped out in one big clump of loveliness! Then I discovered the Henderson Shooting Star, but on the way to photograph it, I found a glowing Buttercup smiling up at me with its beautiful yellow face, and because it was open, and the Shooting Star is still a bud, I decided that the Buttercup gets to be #4 and the Shooting Star is #5!

Because this Jonquil is still a bud, it would lead a person to wonder how I can tell it's a jonquil and not a daffodil. :D Well, to be honest, I'm going on my memory here and the jonquils grow in this patch, with the daffodils one patch over! :D I may be wrong though, so we'll just have to wait and see as these forming buds finally pop open to expose the gorgeous flower inside! UPDATE: this bud opened up to expose a DAFFODIL inside!! Now where are those Jonquils?! :D :D

Can you tell that I'm a little bit excited about my Spring Flower Count?! :D :D :D I have to tell you...I've been nosing around the meadow and there are four more kinds of flowers now!!! WOOT!! I think I'll need to keep posting one flower every day or I won't be able to keep up...I see signs of many more on their way!! YAY!!!
