When we were in Costa Rica I made an effort to post a blog every day. Got in the habit.... had a great time doing it. Felt like I had a good way to record our adventure and that it could hold the interest of a few folks... even posting my daily sights on our walks.
Well... now we're back in Texas. I won't write about our walk today because we didn't take one. We did make 3 trips into Granbury... I won't go into the details, but I've had computer problems, and my laptop is now at Staples being fixed (again). I'm using my backup laptop (doesn't everyone have a backup?). I suspect I'm in the minority, but I think a lot of my problems have to do with computer illiteracy rather than just bad luck.
Now... I think posts should have a photo if possible.... you know... A picture worth a thousand words?
Here is today's offering....
This poor, ragged daffodil is trying real hard to bloom in this Texas "soil" (more like clay).
It's been a rough winter here, and obviously there hasn't been much moisture.
There's a story behind this daffodil (of course there is).
It's a descendant of bulbs I planted over 50 years ago. I love daffodils and planted many, many of them on our place when I first got married. That marriage didn't last, but the daffodils did. I dug them up and took them with me... planted them on the farm when Bill & I got married over 30 years ago. Each time we go back to the farm (we no longer stay in the house as it's now rented). Bill's always working along the side of the driveway which continually slips down - and the daffodil bulbs move down with the earth. So he brought a bucket of bulbs out here to Texas a couple of years ago and planted them at our daughter's house.
Well.... that is this year's crop.
I'm not holding my breath that any others will bloom this year.
I know... kind of pathetic, isn't it?
As I so often say.... "It is what it is"
That's All For Today!
