i got a little pot of jonquil-like mini daffodils a couple of weeks ago and decided to document their progress day by day. they bloomed and died very quickly, and had a faint but sweet smell. it was very cheering to see signs of spring in the middle of so much winter.
had a long chat with the guy at the nursery. what we call jonquils don't exist in canada, which makes me very sad. i miss their smell so much. but these little daffies were a nice substitute, and i can grow them from the bulbs next year, which will be even more satisfying.
full bloom in snow
planning a bike ride
making pizza dough for potluck
after the potluck (more dirty dishes piled up in the loungeroom)
leftover wine from potluck
starting to shrivel, by the marking
after this point they started to look pretty beat up, so i stopped photographing them. wait til next year for the next exciting episode!
