Festive

My hometown has a springtime parade every year, the Daffodil Festival Parade. This is the likely explanation for why daffodils –A.K.A. narcissus– have always been my favorite spring flower. However, since I moved to Minnesota, they are really put to the test. Any flower that emerges from the cold abyss from winter here is welcome. Crocus, forsythia, lilac, tulips, grape hyacinth, scylla: I love them all.

It seems that the early arrival of spring has brought them all nearly at once. I think we’re going to have a very green and yellow summer.
