Daffodils in The Rain
4/30 Photograph Uplifting
Inspiring / Daffodil / Spring
Another dreary Spring day here with the rain holding off until this afternoon. I spent the day painting atFebruary, it does look better with out the flowery wall paper. Due to the condition of the walls after the wall paper removal plus electrical work, there was a lot of wall repairs that had to be made.
After the paining, I was in a hurry to get home to get my picture for today's prompt. It was another good excuse to take pictures of daffodils. I had to get out and take pictures quickly to avoid getting soaked. Luckily nobody was driving by to see me in my painting clothes crouching and kneeling to get the shot for today. I was hoping to get rain in the picture, but more light was needed to for me to be at the lower shutter speed that was recommended to backlight the rain. I will fake it with a hose another time with flowers later on this year. I am not sure what the purple is in the background of today's picture, but it works since it is plain.
Every spring when the daffodils come up, I always get the big idea of getting a 100 bulbs and just putting them all around the yard and on the edge of the woods in the back. But it so shady here in the the back that there are no daffodils there yet and in the front, the tulips aren't even close to blooming. In the downtown area, the tulips are budding already! Love the bright yellow of the daffodils and I can be patient for the rest of the garden to emerge. And it bears repeating, where is the sun???
