mini-daffies

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.

just blooming


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!

marking always makes the mini-daffs shrivel, in my experience

next time, keep them further away from the pile of essays and they'll last much longer
