This week’s bouquet is a lovely combination of sunlight and simplicity.
We had strong thunderstorms yesterday and very high winds today, leaving many of the daffodils with their faces in the dirt. With a soft shower in the kitchen sink, they were soon looking lovely and happy again.
I knew they wouldn’t be able to pick themselves up again, so I decided to bring them in and enjoy their beauty. Being quarantined and working from home, I am able to carry them around from room to room to fully enjoy their company and uplifting presence.
Daffodils are not an exotic flower, but they contain within themselves, the essence of hope. To me, they shout winter is behind us, and joy, sun, warmth, and color are on the way. They are the trumpeters of spring.
This little sweetheart, actually has a double trumpet.
In these troubling and difficult times of uncertainty, I pray these simple daffodils bring you joy, hope, and a smile to your face.
