What region are you in, Ellen Grace? LikeLike Dear Cynthia, We live in Wisconsin, in the Midwest USA. Our winters are long. For the photo challenges, I often enjoy sharing some of the best photos from our archives again. No flowers now – snowdrops will be the first to bloom in our yard. Thank you.

Karl took all the photos in the earlier years, and the daffodils in blue vase is a favorite of readers. Our house began as a cottage in the 1940s – that is the original wood restored in the photo. The daffodils were from a gift planter one year. I did not have the energy to plant the bulbs, but we placed them in a neighborhood compost pile in a woods – and they bloom every year. Thanks again!

It’s a pile of old leaves, garden trimmings, etc. Karl said the daffodils are growing through old leaves that are becoming soil. I’ll need to make sure to see this year.
