Later in summer, the boys will have to start mowing their back yard. But for now, it’s a wonderland of tall grass and beautiful wild flowers.
They’ve got some gorgeous ones in the front yard, too. These daffodils are the strangest I’ve seen in a long while.
I’m used to them having coronas that extend out like the bell of a trumpet, but this one’s tiny. The flower barely seems 3-dimensional.
See – if you look at them from the side, the corona almost vanishes.
And one had a wee spider hanging out behind its bloom.
I usually don’t think of daffodils as brooding, but this one certainly looks like it’s deeply contemplative.
They’re really lovely, and it’s only just the beginning. The Pacific Northwest spring, summer and fall are all full of flowers. Many of them might be considered weeds by flower bed purists, but I think they’re all wonderful. We’ll have lots.
