Just Fluttering…

I wandered lonely as a Cloud
That floats on high o’er vales and Hills,
When all at once I saw a crowd,
A host, of golden Daffodils;
Beside the Lake, beneath the trees,
Fluttering and dancing in the breeze.

~ William Wordsworth

I know Wordsworth talks of daffodils but I chose daisies, because they are one of the flowers that signify friendship. Tomorrow is Valentine’s Day (of course you know that, the commercial has already enticed you), here in Finland we celebrate it as a friends day.

We all are busy but do take time now and again to show your friends how much they mean to you.

…by to say Happy Friendship Day!

      Thank you Naomi. Isn’t it just a wonderful poem!

      1. That poem really touches me deeply, and it would even if it weren’t one of my mother’s favorites.

    Ah…Daffs, I planted bulbs for the first time this winter and they have all made an appearance but not flowering yet. Just as well – it tried to snow earlier this week. But the shops are full of them – at £1 a bunch – I can afford to fill the house with them. Beautiful.

      Thanks Footsy! How lucky that you have Daffs in your garden. Spring is now here, and they’ll be shooting flowers in no time:).
