Life on the edge: the first daffodil
Family Amaryllidacea, Narcissus sp.
My first daffodil emerges at the very edge of my plot, next to the central path of the community gardens, and so, not surprisingly, it gets a bit battered. Still, I admire it's verve and sunniness, raring to go despite the occasional trampling. Life on the edge means more sun, lots of good stuff such as attention and admiration, though with the chance of a bashing by the elements. Surely a good life lesson from the daffodil this morning, especially for me as I tend to gravitate away from the edges.
