Sping Daffodils (not on a windowsil!)

Spring Daffodils

I posted the photo of this painting in the room setting and then realised I had not posted it here in my blog. So a little late, but here is a reminder of spring.

Each year I place some daffodil bulbs in a terracotta pot and hope they flower earlier than the ones in the garden. I bought this pot inside and placed it against the window with the light streaming through. I always feel that, living in France, I'm at a disadvantage because we do not have interior window sills and I cannot get the true feeling of the flowers on a window sill which is a great prop for container plants.
