Daffodil Surprise!

Thank you Sarah Palin. Your incessant voice on NPR this afternoon from your Boston visit led me to turn off NPR and put on a radio station with one classic '70s song after another. I opened a bottle of wine and danced around to Fleetwood Mac, Hall and Oates, Barry White, Abba, Diana Ross, Marvin Gaye, Gladys Knight, Saturday Night Fever, Elton John (Levon). Every song a fun memory.

I created a delicious dinner too. Greek Chard Pie and Sweet Potato Fries. Here's a photo. Check out the delightful daffodils in the vase. My daughter picked the bouquet from our meadow which is filled with naturalized daffodils. There are certainly some lovely surprises when you move to a new house!

There's also a beautiful star magnolia out front. It's nearly gone by now, but here's a collage of pictures from the first and second week of April.

"Shake your Bootie" just came on. I'm turning off the radio and computer. Hope your spring has sprung.

you're lucky with that daffy patch.
