There are daffodils beginning to bloom around Baltimore. Not quite in full bloom, but little early ones here and there. I bought some daffodils, imported from England, when I was at Trader Joe's the other day. Their buds were closed tightly, but I put them in water and overnight, they opened wide.
I loved the long daffodil season in the UK, so was delighted to buy a piece of that memory. The River Taff in Cardiff had a long park along side of it with swathes of daffodils, and in fact, the daff is the flower of Wales. There were also loads of daffs in the local graveyard.
At the rugby games in Cardiff, there are 70,000+ people in the stands, singing and waving their inflatable daffodils (and leeks). In this video, you can see the fans waving leeks and daffs, but you can't hear them singing Tom Jones' songs. You might even see me somewhere in the crowd, too. Cymru am byth!
Today, I was at the local Asian market and saw this sign advertising daffodils. I bought spring onions instead.
