Oh yeah, sounds like mine. And mine aren’t even planted yet at my new place. But they sure as Hell started coming up in their bags, only to get pounded by snowstorms that have been rolling through. Stupid daffodils, got fooled again.
Friends, Reader, Countrymen – with Valentine’s Day around the corner, here’s a small bit of advice. Don’t let the perfect become the enemy of the good. A Valentine’s Day night with a Friend with Benefits is better than one spent alone or with some desperate, hookup partner. True, it’s not as good as having a “proper,” romantic partner on Valentine’s Day, but a Friend with Benefits is a relationship partner, therefor both good enough and far less stressful than the norm on this upcoming holiday.
Pedantic Note: The yellow roses with some red-blushed one amongst them are a “hat tip” to one variant of the Floriography of Victorian times in which yellow roses were for friendship and red ones for romantic interests. 😉
While all flowers have a certain beauty and all of them provide a certain sort of pleasure and mind and soul healing, there’s just something extra special about sunflowers. As you can easily see, there’s a reason why sunflowers have long been associated with fertility.
