Friday at the Farm: {Early Spring Heirlooms}

"The deep roots never doubt that Spring will come."
                                                                                                   -Marty Rubin

These flowers are always the first sign of Spring at the farm.

The sunny yellow hue an appropriate harbinger of the sunny days to come.

My grandmother called this type of flower a jonquil.

I have heard others refer to them by different names.

Whatever you want to call them, I think they're gorgeous.

 I transplanted these bulbs to their current locations a few years ago.  
The original "home place" on this farm is long gone.  
However, in the Spring, it is possible to see where the old flower beds and gardens and walkways were located, thanks to the flower bulbs.  

One Spring while they were still in bloom, I journeyed to hilltop where the old home place once stood, and flagged the flowers I liked.  
I returned in the Fall, dug around the staked flags, located bulbs, dug them up, and transplanted them to my flower beds. 

These flowers were originally planted on the farm over 100 years ago.  

Wishing you all a weekend full of springtime cheer and new beginnings.

And deep roots.
