Spring is on the way!

Happy Wednesday!

Here on the West Coast Spring is definitely making an appearance.  The crocuses in my front lawn are blooming, and the birds at our feeders are multiplying every day, swooping around in the air and singing so clearly that we can hear them inside even with the windows closed.

To celebrate that I have a daffodil card for you, in hopes that a few of those bulbs in my garden will have survived the winter an make an appearance soon :-)
