Each Monday Cathy at Rambling In The Garden invites us to share a vase of materials gathered from our gardens.
Blue containers, yellow flowers. I have no sunflowers to feature this morning but perhaps you will agree daffodils are appropriate.
Among the most democratic of flowers, daffodils are long-lasting, easy for everyone to grow, rewarding to pass-along. A great equalizer, this time of year nearly every house in North Carolina, large or small, shares a few bright yellow blooms with passersby.
The courageous flowers amaze us with their resilience. They are stalwarts, consoling us after a long winter, gladdening our hearts, filling us with optimism, giving notice of renewal. While they cannot bring peace they can symbolize a brighter way to lead and live.
