Whispering Grass

Sometimes, when you have a lot of work to do, you just need suspenders to pull you through the day!

I love my Mum's daffodil's that have sprouted up recently. In my opinion, they are a distinctively happy flower (even though, one origin of their name "Narcissus" tells a decidely different story). In Greek mythology, Narcissus became so obsessed with his own beauty that he sat, staring at his reflection in a pond until he eventually starved to death. According to legend, the place where he died is where the first daffodil sprung up. When the daffodil wilts, it symbolises Narcissus admiring himself. So perhaps not the most optimistic legend...

Anyway, tales aside...
 See you soon!
Love
