My Beautiful Wickedness


Dying of jealousy

We will not have daffodils (except in tubs, in grocery stores) for about another three months. My internal clock has never reset to high north; I think it’s daffodil time right about now. Or now. Or maybe now. But I’m out of luck.

I will take lots of pictures. I cannot wait! I have lots of stems. Apparently I’m waiting for buds and then blooms.

Ha, and that’s how you know I’m officially old. I’m talking all stems and buds and I mean daffodils.

I prefer “buttercups” (I guess the name reminds me of fattening food), and they are busting out all over right now.

But, we haven’t had a single decent snow this year, so it’s a trade-off.

Aw, Bridgett, now you’re making me feel like a heel. So I guess I shouldn’t mention that between yesterday morning and this morning, I got several buds on my bulbs, including one that looks like it’s only two or three days from opening up.

Slarti, I know other locals who call daffodils “buttercups.” But then what do you call buttercups http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ranunculus ?

Butter and Eggs? Creeping Jenny? Little shiny yeller things?

No, all that means is that I need to move somewhere (or at least visit somewhere) with an earlier spring.

Spring will happen in the fullness of time. And earlier for you than me, by the way!
