357 – Daffodils


I love daffodils – it’s such a crazy name for starters, but beyond that I love they way they are, for the most part, unassuming and unashamedly themselves. I’m not 100% keen on the insipid pastel and double versions, I much prefer the full strength yellows and orange colours, and the single flowers. I want to expand the clumps we have growing.

The thing I like most about daffodils is their robust reliability. No matter how foul the weather has been, come Spring, daffodils are up and flowering. They make such great role models. It’s easy to feel down in the dumps, especially if things are not going as we think they should. I suspect that at any given point of the day there are at least three of our plans not going to plan. I’m sure this is true for daffodil plans too – however, they manage to take all of this in their stride and just get on with making a success of themselves on their own terms. Enviable clarity.

Manifesto
