Look at these funny little things!


Melbourne is having a colder-than-usual winter, and this past week was leaden-skied and full of rain as well as days that started near 0 degrees centigrade (32F) and didn’t climb higher than about 12 (53.6F). I know, I know, it’s nothing like the cold in some other countries and regions!

Nevertheless, it’s been very dreary walking to the train each morning on my way to work. Until…a glimmer of hope!

I thought spring bulbs were activated by warming weather, but these funny little things don’t seem to care that it’s nearly freezing overnight.

Yes, these cute little daffodils have bloomed along the roadside, brightening the day and letting us know that there’s nothing surer than the fact that spring will come.
