Hope


Mr JK's daffodil has flowered this week. I was given the bulb at a service of remembrance at my local church as a symbol of hope and duly planted it. Last year it didn't flower (I think I planted it rather late) so I was extremely pleased to see a shoot emerging that looked like it had a flower on it last month. I've been taking part in #daffodilwatch for what feels like for ever. Not even the snow managed to stop its progress. I can see it bobbing about from the kitchen window, and it makes me smile, albeit tinged with sadness. But the days are getting longer, hopefully spring is on its way good and proper now and the sun is shining, so there's lots to be thankful for. xxx

What a beautiful, bright, cheerful symbol of hope that daffodil is. And I love your gnome, standing guard over it! It is so uplifting to see these yellow beauties all around. Today has been bright and sunny here, it definitely feels as if spring is now here.

I'm hoping there'll still be daffodils in Yorkshire when we get there on the 20th April ?

I plant bulbs for all deaths of my loved ones, pets, and friends. It’s definitely bittersweet, but allows some beauty to help me remember to focus on the beauty of those who have passed.

In the days I had a garden I always planted something to mark a death, pet or person, it seems a positive thing to do. So I'm glad Mr JK's daff is thriving, hopefully it will for years to come and remind you of all the good you are doing in his memory.
