Carnations are cheerful flowers that are at home in any number of places. For instance, in the springtime, you may see a carnation pinned to the lapel of a young man's prom tuxedo or in a bride's bouquet. You're likely to see them tucked into a vase alongside a gathering of daisies or roses. It's no wonder this popular bloom is the official flower of January.

With each day comes a new sign of spring. It's such a pleasure to watch the subtle and not-so-subtle changes in animals, plants, and people. One of my favorite signs of spring is seeing robins, cardinals, and other birds scouting out the trees for the best nest locations. I think I have a couple of robins that are very interested in a maple tree growing near my home. This week, I took some time to reflect on other familiar signs of spring.

I'm seeing so many daffodils popping up all around my neighborhood, and I hope you're spotting them, too. These flowers are so hardy that they've been known to come up out of the earth with snow still on the ground. This week, I'm glad to honor this delightful flower.
