Thankful Thursday

This home, (built between 1810-1825) contains a yard full of Daffodils.  They have naturalized over the past two hundred years.  They even extend well beyond this photograph.  

Thankful this Thursday for all being well.  Yesterday brought a fierce round of storms with the possibility of tornadoes, but all was well.  The stormy weather passed with a few tree limbs in the yard and a couple of pieces of siding missing from the house.  

Excellent results, I say!  

What are you thankful for this Thursday?  Weather related or not, just let me know!

  1. oh that is so pretty! i have been thinking about the daffodils where the slave cabins used to be...if you remember the whole issue of the county moving them and tearing the hill up that had me so angry?! well, right now the hill would be covered in the daffodils that had been planted by the slaves near their cabins...i loved how they would come back each year, but not this year since the county tore it all down...grrr...still mad!

  2. When I was working with a field archaeologist years ago, we would ride around in the spring and locate house sites by the flowers and fruit trees that still bloomed. No evidence of anything remained above ground but the plants were still there.

  7. Today I am thankful for having two days in a row that I do not HAVE anything scheduled . . .
    I do not have to go out and about.
    I can be home and do things here at home.

  12. Wow, sounds like quite the storm to rip siding off your house! Glad you didn't suffer worse damage. Love the daffodil shot.
    I'm just thankful all my kids and grandkids are safe and sound.

  22. It seems so early for tornadoes to be coming through. Glad this missed you and I hope the weather settles down soon and there won't be more of them!

    I'm still thankful for the sights I saw in Mexico on our cruise. We are thinking of taking a Disney Cruise with the grandchildren next year!

  24. I'm thankful for many things....sometimes the milder weather too. A missionary friend of mine...in her 30s, described her shower and toilet options. And now I'm glad for plumbing. The daffodils are wonderful!

  25. That's salada Daffodils! I know that tornadoes are deadly and would probably be worried about them if I live in the tornado zone but I do find them fascinating at the same time.

  26. This homestead looks like a dream to me! We also live in Kentucky and those storms were ferocious! It was a long night my family. A tornado did touch the ground about 15 miles from us, but other than a ton of tree clean-up we're ok. I'm so glad you all are, too. You have a lovely blog to visit, and it's nice to see such beautiful pics of my state!
    Blessings,
    Leslie
