Daffodils come in from the garden

Rain today, and the promise of more through the weekend, sent me out to cut most of the open daffodils.  They will only last a few days in the house; they are better cut in bud.  But with the alternative of daffodils lying on the ground, spattered with mud, I cut a dozen or so and brought them in, then went back for more.  What luxury, what abundance!  What sunshine in the storm! 


  1. By the way, the sap from daffs pollutes the water, so they are better on their own, or at least water must be changed out everyday.

  2. Beautiful! Ours haven't even opened yet. I can't wait til they do!
