March 7, 2013 -- daffy-down-dilly

Many nice encounters with daffodils today. First there were the old-fashioned, naturalized ones blooming outdoors. I picked some to drop into this test tube container, then laid some green chopsticks along the top of the wood base. That addition helped ground them.

While cleaning out files today, I also came across this illustration I'd once copied from a Mother Goose book (I think it was a Mother Goose book). I've always loved the illustration and the rhyme that accompanies it. 

"Daffy-down-dilly is now come to town
With a petticoat green and a bright yellow gown."

  1. My Daughter has a special affection for Daffodils (the name of her blog...her wedding bouquet) but I don't think she knows of this rhyme and photo. many thanks for sharing
