February Gold


At some point before I can remember (maybe even before I was born) Mom planted "February Gold" daffodils under the oak tree outside my bedroom window. I've always loved them. This year she experimented with sending me some (above), along with a variety of other narcissi and a few little branches of heavenly-scented (and also very nostalgic) daphne (below).

Now our little Vermont apartment looks and smells like spring in California! Thanks, Mom!

  1. Wow! I can not believe how those daffodils look. When I mailed them, there was not a bit of yellow in any of the buds. I was skeptical that they would ever open.
    Love, Mom
