I think Spring is my favorite season of the year especially here in southern Indiana. I live in Bloomington where the town is living up to its name. The redbud, cherry and flowering crab apple trees in my yard are in full bloom. The dogwoods have started to explode into bloom around the Indiana University campus. Wildflowers like trillium, bloodroot, Dutchman's britches, and bluebells cover the forest floor where the annual hunt for morel mushrooms is on going. It's hard to imagine there could be so many shades of green as you drive through the countryside.
I went to a friend's annual Spring daffodil party last night and was absolutely delighted to see his beautiful field of daffodils. Here is a little video I made of his daffodils along with my recitation of William Wordsworth's classic poem "Daffodils".
Daffodils have always held a special place in my heart because my mother taught me Wordsworth's poem when I was in the fifth grade. Mom had such a love for poetry. "Daffodils" was one of many she could recite from heart.
