mystery solved:)


Look what I found on my doorstep this morning! I love daffodils. I plant them every year in memory of my dad.What a lovely surprise, but there was no note or indication of where they came from.... I was worried thinking that maybe they had been delivered by mistake. This is Cancer awareness month and these bunches are sold for fund-raising.

In my email, I found the solution to the mystery. A dear friend had dropped them off to me with instructions to share them. Spread Spring cheer. They were flowers left over from the fundraising campaign and rather than throw them out, they were to be enjoyed as gifts.

What a way to brighten a day. And you sure did share them.

"When all at once I saw a crowd,
A host of golden daffodils"

Thanks for the opportunity to quote Wordsworth -- THAT certainly doesn't happen every day!

How wonderful that is! Especially receiving them on a rainy grey day!

what a lovely friend! At the moment every time we see daffodils Isabella shouts "Springtime mummy! look!" ... I keep thinking that when she is a grown woman herself, this will be one of my favourite memories - her utter glee at the emergence of Spring :-)

Oh daffodils are just my favourite!! I used to live in Tasmania (Australia) and they would always come out in time for my birthday in October, but now I live in Queensland and it is too warm for daffodils. Tragic!! They're still my favourite flower.
