Daffodils, Sure Sign of Spring!

Here is a snapshot of my latest Treasury List created on Etsy!

I LOVE Daffodils. I love their many shapes and many colors. They are a pure symbol of spring for me. Their appearance in the spring brings me smiles as I see their perfect form, vibrant color, and remarkable scent! Oh how I long to lie in a field of daffodils with the one I love; my Husband!

William Wordsworth

I wandered lonely as a cloud
That floats on high o'er vales and hills,
When all at once I saw a crowd,
A host, of golden daffodils;
Beside the lake, beneath the trees,
Fluttering and dancing in the breeze.

Continuous as the stars that shine
And twinkle on the milky way,
They stretched in never-ending line
Along the margin of a bay:
Ten thousand saw I at a glance,
Tossing their heads in sprightly dance.

The waves beside them danced, but they
Out-did the sparkling leaves in glee;
A poet could not be but gay,
In such a jocund company!
I gazed—and gazed—but little thought
What wealth the show to me had brought:

For oft, when on my couch I lie
In vacant or in pensive mood,
They flash upon that inward eye
Which is the bliss of solitude;
And then my heart with pleasure fills,
And dances with the daffodils.

Me again!!! You've been tagged!

(now, it doesn't bother me a bit if you choose not to play. It's totally up to you. I will not be offended in the least as I know how time consuming it can be.)

But if you do choose to play, here are the rules:

1. Link to your tagger and post these rules on your blog.

2. Share 7 facts about yourself on your blog, some random, some weird.

3. Tag 7 people at the end of your post by leaving their names as well as links to their blogs.

4. Let them know they are tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.

And have fun! ;)
