A Mood Lifter?

Posted by
Steven (Chicagoland, United States) on 13 April 2020 in Plant & Nature and Portfolio.

Daffodils that just started to bloom in our perennial garden. A pleasant sighting during this confinement period. How ironic that the circular, frilly petal in the center is called a "corona".

Photo captured April 8, 2020.
