Winter In My Garden #3 - Early Narcissus

Pin It

Today dawned sunny and cold, a respite from the stormy, rainy grayness that has plagued us for what seems like forever. I knew this little narcissus, also known as a jonquil, had begun to bloom, but it wasn't until we were graced with a blue sky today that I thought of snapping a photo.

Observing and honoring each season as it comes and goes in its yearly cycle is something I strive for, as each one has something to give us; something we can learn from. Sometimes it's a lesson in patience - I'm already thinking of spring.

PS - If you click on the link in this post, scroll way down the page to get to the myriad photographs of flowering bulbs in this genus.
