Daffodils

daffodils_on_greenIt must be nice to be a Daffodil, comfort in knowing exactly what ones’ job is in the world. Each year, Daffodils will bloom once, and provide a strong signal of Spring, splashing yellow and white across an otherwise still slumbering yard.

After the blooms expire, the leaves will continue to manufacture food to be stored in the bulb until next Spring; eventually, they too will fade, wilt, and repose until next year, their spent carcass fertilizing the soil facilitating next Spring’s emergence.
