Daffodils Bring Me Smiles
This above photo is from day four of the bouquet I bought at Whole Foods, at a great price. No, they don't know I am blogging about this. The daffodils were grown in the USA which has many kind to the earth aspects. More environmental controls, less transportation, etc.
The above photo shows how the ten daffodil stems looked on the day I bought them.
The above shows them on day two.
The above photo shows the daffodils on day three.
Oh daffodils can give me smiles. This photo is from day four of them being in our home. I took them outside to the patio for their photo op.
"Of all the floral catalogues, the most exquisitely tantalizing is the daffodil catalogue. The further you read the deeper the gold." George H. Ellwanger, The Garden's Story, 1889.
"A house with daffodils in it is a house lit up, whether or not the sun be shining outside. Daffodils in a green bowl - and let it snow if it will. " A.A. Milne
