"For oft, when on my couch I lie
In vacant or in pensive mood, 
They flash upon that inward eye
Which is the bliss of solitude;
And then my heart with pleasure fills,
And dances with the daffodils." - William Wordsworth, I Wander'd Lonely as a Cloud

Every day, I take great pleasure at looking at how the daffodils slowly bloom in our garden. 
Last year, we finally got our "jungle" (aka front & back garden) tamed! What a relief! (long story of a sudden move due to fire...& busy 3 years passing by quickly!) It was late Summer and since everything seems to happen all at the same time in our family, we decided to keep things simple. 
We had the space ready but did not plant any flowers and decided to do so this year.

Daffodils is my birth flower according to this random list about everything related to your birthday. 😄

I never saw one for real until I started living in Germany in my early 20's.

You know how you can look at something (or someone 😀) a thousand times and at one point seem to see it for the first time? Discover it once again with more scrutiny?

I guess this is how I felt looking at our daffodils this afternoon, after an exhilirating 10  km bike ride. 
They bow so humbly and yet looking majestic in the process. 
I like this quality in daffodils and in people.

Just thoughts... 😊🌞 #happythoughts #humility
