What can I say? Some say it is coincidence, and some say it is God. And, some say it is simple statistics that out of the thousands of statements one hears or says in the course of one day, a subject is bound to be repeated. At the same time, once my attention is drawn to a subject or person, I no doubt notice it again and again, or even seek it out.
I don’t really know where I was going with that thought, but that was how my day started out.
Yesterday, I decided to do something nice for myself and bought a cluster of stem daffodils while at the grocery store. I wasn’t sure quite what they would do, if they would open at all, or slowly and progressively, like one firework at a time.
This is what they looked like yesterday:
When I got home this evening, I came home to KA-BOOM!!!
I didn’t expect almost all 20 to go at once!
They’re practically duking it out for space!
I have always liked watching vibrant flowers emerge from seemingly dead, dried-up bulbs. One year for my mother’s birthday, I spent hours digging up the strip of dirt along the driveway and planting a mixed bag of about 80 daffodils. That spring, and every year thereafter, they come up and put on a show like clockwork.
That’s another thing I’m looking forward to about getting my own place in a few months… houseplants, and maybe a garden.
