She wore her yellow sun-bonnet,
She wore her greenest gown;
She turned to the south wind
And curtsied up and down.
She turned to the sunlight
And shook her yellow head,
And whispered to her neighbour:
“Winter is dead.”

Daffodil season is a month or more away here in central Iowa. But I read the A. A. Milne poem the other day and couldn’t resist sharing. The pictures are from an outing last spring to Reiman Gardens, Iowa State University, Ames (click here to discover Reiman Gardens). The bright yellow makes me smile despite the overcast, rainy, gray day out my window this morning.
Have a beautiful day!
