This morning when I let the dogs out after breakfast, I walked out into the yard to see if I could find any new daffodil leaves poking their way up through the grass. After roaming around the yard for a bit, I climbed up on the back yard fence to look over into the pasture, and spotted a bit of white peeking through some tangled grasses ... the first paperwhites!
Late this afternoon I took a break to walk out there and take some photos of these early blooms.
Here’s a glance back at the house and our seven-foot high back yard fence. It looks so small compared with the sweeping landscape of the pasture.
What a beautiful time of day, right before the winter sunset when the light is tinged with gold. I’m truly blessed to be surrounded by such inspiration!
