    A lovely Haiku Becca.
    I particularly liked the idea of ‘illusion of warmth’. We can get a little over excited when we see the sun!

    Since I have had these daffodil bonnets waving at me beside my front walk since mid-January, I know only too well they are only an illusion of warmth. Actually, they are triggered in their blooming by the change in the number of daylight minutes, did you know? I love their headgear, don’t you?

    No daffodils in this part of the world, yet – I think they’re late this year. Or maybe they’ve been too early in the past, heralding a false spring that lapses back into mean, cold days, disrupting the natural cycle of growth. So I’m content to wait for the appearance of these cheerful harbingers of spring!

    Daffodils are easily one of my favorite flowers, for their color, texture and abundance. Your haiku makes me think of a whole field of them! Beautiful Becca!

    I love the illusion of warmth. I always think daffodils come too early! I have a photo of daffodils you might like http://www.flickr.com/photos/cloakedmonk/4449411008/ . I retouched it because it had a butterfly garden decoration. I took away the stem of the decoration so it looks like the daffodils are chasing the butterfly. Sort of. 🙂
