Yellow and White Daffodils add cheer and hope

Winter seems to be dragging along. It’s late April, but feels and looks like March. The antidote to the gloom appears to be the bright yellow of the massed planting of the Forsythia shrubs. It adds a glow to these driveway gardens that I designed when one psychologically needs it most–in the drab days of early spring. The daffodils in yellow and white scattered in planting groups throughout the gardens connect and pull the cheerful color throughout the landscape.

I’m amazed each year by the power of yellow to cheer up a drab grey day. It’s a powerful ┬ásignal that spring is really here. ┬áThe chords of yellow spring into the song of hope that the dreary cold and gray weather, bare ground and branches will be replaced with new leaves and flowers and bright sunny days.
