It has been so wet and rainy and cloudy (and even a bit snowy) lately. I do not do well with too much overcastedness without a decent break. Usually we don’t go so long without a few days of sun at least, the best we have been getting is maybe half a day of scattered sun then back to a week of rain!
So the other day while grocery shopping I picked up a couple bunches of daffodils. Now I usually won’t buy daffodils for the same reason I don’t buy blackberries, they are naturally abundant around here in their seasons. But I thought this was an emergency of mental health. I needed a bit of a pick me up, and daffodils are like a little bit of sunshine indoors. They were a reminder that spring will eventually get here and there will be sun again! Besides they are one of my favorite flowers.
I also have started forcing a bunch of daffodil and narcissus bulbs in my kitchen window, so in a few weeks I should be drowning in fragrant blossoms, and that will be fantastic.
