I am participating in the March Slice of Life Story Challenge. Thanks to the co-authors of Two Writing Teachers for creating this supportive community.
We have experienced some unusually warm weather in eastern PA the past few weeks. Yesterday there were blue skies, gentle winds, and temperatures in the 60’s. I knew all that was about to change, so I visited my backyard flower beds to see what was going on and to snap a few pictures. About half of the daffodils were already blooming, along with the forsythia. I snipped a few blossoms so I could enjoy them indoors, and I’m glad I did. Today those daffodils are hunkered down, covered in wet snow.
What a Difference a Day Makes
Daffodils burst forth,
promise new life,
gently nod their heads
in the wind.
Then a cruel reminder –
Old Man Winter has not yet left the building!
