The daffodils have been glorious this spring, especially when the light shines through the petals. They are such an abundant response to life. Buried underground for months they have the courage to burst out for just a few weeks. I should take heart from them.
The plants are setting out with determination into the new year and I hope that they won’t be caught by a late frost. Daffodils, primroses, and hellebores are open everywhere, and in the garden I have Iris Lazica.
