I saw some Narcissus blossoms this morning. I so wanted to stop and take a picture, but they were in the middle of a boulevard on a busy street, and stopping was not an option.
Even though the winter landscapes are bleak, seeing the first Narcissus blooms of the season rekindles a sense of renewal and hope for the new year, much like Dogwoods do in the Spring.
I love the way the centers of the flowers in the next picture look as if they're "letting their little light shine."
I wish you an abundance of bright and beautiful lagniappe, like these lovely little flowers that remind us of God's glory and presence in our lives, even on the bleakest days of winter.
The word lagniappe, as defined by Webster's, means "something given or obtained gratuitously, or by way of good measure."
"Time never turns backwards
Its old charms to give,
In photographs only
Can yesterdays live."
