Ah, just what I’ve been waiting for. Doug Welch has posted a picture of his first daffodils for this year. But I’d like to know where our Texas gardeners are. Usually by now Zanthan Gardens has narcissus up. I know I have just about swooned over her photos of narcissus in past years. So good to see these flowers that convey the essence of spring on so many levels while the snow is drifted high outside. It helps one hang on until Spring arrives on one’s own doorstep, about the time Texans are harvesting their first tomatoes!
If winter is slumber and spring is birth, and summer is life, then autumn rounds out to be reflection. It’s a time of year when the leaves are down and the harvest is in and the perennials are gone. Mother Earth just closed up the drapes on another year and it’s time to reflect on what’s come before.
