Day 92 -Happy Memory

April is Cancer Awareness month in Canada. Part of their campaign is to sell Daffodils. These are Peg's favourite flowers. For her they are a happy sensory memory. When she was a little girl, her mother volunteered as a member of the Imperial Order of the Daughters of the Empire (I.O.D.E.) to sell these for the Cancer Society. She remembers being in the room where they had cases and cases of these waiting to be sorted for sale. She can never resist buying bouquets of these at this time of year. I often catch her sniffing them with a big smile on her face. To her they smell like spring.

Daffodils are definitely spring - can't wait until I see some growing outside.

This is wonderful. The composition is absolutely perfect with the greenery on the right, and partially open bloom on the left. And the focus ... absolute perfection.
