On Monday, when I was taking some trash out to the cans, I notice this, my first daffodil of the season.
It reminded me to take a moment and enjoy the beauty that is all around me.
Every year, for the first ten years we were living here, I planted at least 100 daffodils. Most came back up for several years, so I figured at one point I must have had at least 1000.
Then we had a few very dry years and I was too busy in fall to plant. They began to die off, and now many of the places I had planted are no longer blooming.
In a few places they continue to come up and do well. I enjoy seeing them each spring.
I walk to remind myself that I will reach my goal only by taking one step at a time.
