Perfectly timed for Earth Day, my sister Cory sent this picture of daffodils she has planted, explaining in her email:
This is the result of three or four years of bulb planting along the edge of the road. Finally made it from the driveway up to the intersection. There’s a quilt pattern called “Drunkard’s Path”. I’m thinking of calling this “Drunken Daffodils’ Path”!
What the gardener knows. How many years and shovels of dirt it takes for a zigzag trail of blooming daffodils.
What the gardener knows: patience and the ephemeral nature of flowers.
Next week, I hope to see the “Drunken Daffodils’ path” for myself.
Thank you Cory for letting me post your email and photo!
