“Though many a flower in the wood is waking,
The daffodil is our doorside queen;
She pushes upward the sword already,
To spot with sunshine the early green.”
--William Cullen Bryant, An Invitation to the Country
May we all wake an hour earlier tomorrow morning with a promise of spring by our doorstep!
In the spirit of full disclosure, the urn pictured above is not mine but rather a round-the-corner neighbor’s. In the spirit of exceptionally full disclosure, my neighbor told me that her neighbor fills her urns as a gift each spring. In the spirit of ridiculously full disclosure, now I am jealous of both her urns and her neighbor! And the Mister reminds me, “Comparison is the thief of joy!”
