Lonesome Soldier



I noticed this one lonesome daffodil last night when I came home. It is all by itself....none of the other daffodils are anywhere near ready to bloom however this one was so anxious to pop, there it was all by its lonesome self!

We had a very windy spring day today. It was almost difficult to walk when I took my walk at lunchtime. When I got home tonight, there was this poor lonesome daffodil, like a casualty of war, just laying in the garden.
I hope the calm environment inside will make it happy for another day or two.
We'll be good companions!

Sometimes I feel sad for objects. I never really understood why. I thought I was weird for it- but I can tell by how you described the daffodil that you must have the same feelings. I would have picked it too :)

Oh, Beth, it's like your very own personal sun shining for you... I love it! So happy!! Love, Silke

The first ones are always the prettiest for some reason. I guess it's because we're so anxious for them to appear. Enjoy.

I love the brave little flower and I am so glad you rescued it and gave it a few more days of life. Enjoy it.
