Merry Christmas Wishes

At some point in the fall I watched with interest as a clump of daffodils began springing from the earth.  Didn't they know it wasn't Spring?
They grew taller and soon a plump bud formed.
Weeks passed and the bud stayed firmly closed.
Certainly it wasn't going to open at this time of year, was it?
Why yes it was and still is.
Since I've never had a spring bulb blooming in my yard in December, it was necessary to take a photo and share it with you.

 There's a touch of Spring mingling with the Christmas decor indoors too.  Red tulips and a white hyacinth are lending a bit of natural beauty to the dining room.

 And the amaryllis that I showed you back here 
is blooming just in time for Christmas.

~ From my home to yours, I'm wishing you a
Merry Christmas ~ 

** Praying for Peace ... now more than ever **



  1. How interesting that the blossoms are coming in December. I'm sure that they are welcome whenever they bloom. I purchased a small bouquet at the grocers so that I could have some fresh flowers. The poinsettia grows, but the leaves never have turned red again. The rosemary hitches along...nothing is doing so great here. Yay for the amaryllis blooming in time for Christmas. That's always like a miracle, too. Merry Christmas, my friend. If it can't be peace everywhere, at least let it be peace in our hearts.

  2. Beautiful flowers! Merry Christmas, Kim, to you and your family!


  3. Oh Kim, those flowers are so special. Merry Christmas to you and your family, and yes, I yearn for a peaceful 2013, too. All the best for the New Year. xo

  4. Hi Kim,

    These are beautiful holiday images; I just love all the gorgeous flowers! It is very odd about the daffodils blooming; we have Japanese Cherry trees blooming around Winston-Salem, believe it or not.

    I wish you and yours a Joyous Christmas and a Blessed New Year.

  7. Kim, we wish you a most blessed Christmas, and yes, Peace in the New Year. Love, Twyla and Lindsey

  8. Wow, spring in winter - how nice!!
    Some of the cherry trees down by the lake have a few blossoms on them too.

    A very Merry Christmas to you my friend and all of your family.
    If you talk to Norma please tell her and her family Merry Christmas from me too. : )

  9. Merry Christmas and wishes for the coming year. Thank you Kim for being such a great blog friend and sharing so much beauty this past year.

    Hugs coming across the pond from England!

  10. The red tulips are perfect for Christmas! I'm a little late...but send Christmas greetings to you and your family anyhow.

  11. The daffodils were waiting for just the right time to gift you with such pleasure, Kim. Wishing you the most blessed and happiest New Year!

  12. Beautiful flowers. You wouldn't expect blooms in December. I say, enjoy their beauty. Blessings, Linda

  13. Hi Kim,

    Your bulbs are stunning! I hope you had a wonderful Christmas and wish you all the best in 2013.

  14. I am so happy that I visited your blog today! The beauty you shared, made my day. What gorgeous flower pictures! I do hope you and your family had a good Christmas, and I too pray for peace.
