Sometimes you wonder what this day is all about. Is it to sell “stuff”… probably. However, it is also a day that we can remember to express and share thoughts of love and affection to loved ones, and friends. But hey, why not do that every day? Wouldn’t that be lovely.
For those of us who are not a recipient of the “stuff” on this day, I know that lovely things do arrive anyway. On my forest walk last week, I spied the annual King Alfred daffodils that somehow manage each year to grow in the forest terrain. And, they had emerged from winter’s sleep and were budding already! The temperature has been below freezing and there were more days arriving with snow and ice in the forecast. Therefore, I decided: pick the buds and take them home!
The seven buds have now sat on the counter in a lovely crystal vase, for over a week. I debated whether I was too late in salvaging them and that they been frozen, since they had not opened up yet.
And then this morning when I got up... I saw yellow! Yep, one bud had opened during the night. How lovely and definitely: eye candy. And during the day, one by one, the rest have started to slowly open. As you can see they have arrived healthy and lovely.
It is two days until Valentine’s Day. And, I now will be able to enjoy such beautiful flowers that have been sent with love from Mother Earth. Awesome and thank you, I do love this yellow “stuff!”
