Daffodils Chasing Butterfly in Lacey, Washington

Daffodils Chasing Butterfly, originally uploaded by terrijane01.

Photographer terrijane01 tells us about this lively image taken on March 17, 2010: The daffodil photos were taken at St. Placid’s Priory in Lacey, Washington. St. Placid’s is a Benedictine Monastery for nuns. I am not a nun, but I was taking a retreat there.

These daffodils were growing in the garden that the nuns keep. The last time I was here, the garden was overflowing with vivid summer colors. I was not expecting to see the beautiful yellows of the daffodils when I went there on a retreat in mid-March. Most of the garden was barren.
