Daffodil In The Dirt

I mooched over to my compost bin yesterday with the idea of starting to think about fertilising my herb garden. There growing inside was a proud, solitary daffodil. It would be an insult to nature's cycles to disturb it, and so I have the perfect excuse not to do any outside work until its bloom has wilted. Viva spring.

The spirit of Madoc has returned to claim America for the Wales.

Have you tried using daffodil as a herb? Brings up the wind, so they say.

Boyo, are you saying this is an invasive plant? Then I must get out there with my weed-whacker for an Easter Sunday floral crucifixion.

GB, I'm unsure about eating flowers. In those odd restaurants where they top your food with exotic, supposedly edible petals, it just doesn't feel right. Like eating humans.

Maybe it's nature mocking you-- composting is for pansies? Or at least flowerly ones. Not that I actually believe that...

It's the national flower of Wales, and therefore must be considered a weed to have any true street cred somewhere like Merthyr.

The fact-based community continues to deny the subjective truth of Prince Madoc's conquest of The Goddamm United States, but it's good to see that Gaia is on our side.
