The weather has been beautiful this weekend – clear skies, a big bold sun and for us, the very first daffodils have shown their faces in the garden.
All over Cornwall the fields are starting to turn into a beautiful blaze of yellow as the annual crop of early daffys bloom. And whilst browsing on instagram the other week I saw this quote by A.A. Milne on MyTodayWasBeautiful‘s feed, I’ve never heard it before (despite being a big Pooh fan) and absolutely love it, so thought I’d repost here along with one of my pictures.
Here’s the full verse:
by A.A. Milne
She wore her yellow sun-bonnet,
She wore her greenest gown;
She turned to the south wind
And curtsied up and down.
She turned to the sunlight
And shook her yellow head,
And whispered to her neighbour:
“Winter is dead.”
