Spring is around the corner but it will take a few more days for the first cherry tree blossoms to open - on this high altitude spring is always delayed by at least three weeks...

But following a tip from the locals we drove not far from our town to find a field where the first daffodils have started popping out of the ground. It was a beautiful afternoon with wild clouds above our heads and the children enjoyed picking tiny yellow flowers (this wild variety is much smaller than what I am used to seeing in people's gardens, it only grows about 20 cm tall).

After a while the clouds got darker and our boots were covered in mud so it was time to go home.
In my kitchen now stands a beautiful bouquet of sunshine yellow blossoms to brighten up our mornings.

Have a great weekend,
see you soon!


  1. I WANDER'D 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.


  2. What a wonderful day you had! And the daffodils are so lovely. I'm stil waiting for mine to blossom in my garden. It will take a day or two :)

  3. Such lovely photos from a "springy" frolicsome day! Nice and very enjoyable post Damjana! The daffodils are marvelous - I love wild flowers!
    Have a wonderful weekend too!
