The Determined Daffodil
One of my favorite times of year is when the daffodils bloom. I don't know why I love daffodils so much, but their sunny faces always make my heart skip a beat!
Here's one of the beauties blooming in our garden:
An average daffodil, right? We moved our daffodils from the back garden to the front a few years ago. Since then, the hawthorne bushes that we planted in their place have flourished. But this overlooked daffodil bulb was apparently determined to bloom, even if it meant growing a three-foot stem to reach the sun and the clear air.
The only thing holding up that stem is the hawthorne bush. Now that's determination. I wish I could say I was that resilient and determined under trying circumstances!
