Today was Sandal Day. I know you thought it was April Fool's Day, but actually it was Sandal Day. It was the first time I wore sandals since last fall. O.K. Now that I have that out of the way, I will tell you about one of my plants. I found these coming up two or three years ago beside the road on which I live. Because no one cares what is there, except for maybe the grass that someone mows occasionally, I didn't think anyone would want them. So I dug them up and brought them home, rather than just letting them get mowed. I think it is like the reverse of guerrilla gardening - to take plants from an area no one is tending, as opposed to planting where no one is tending. It is an act of preservation, right?
At first I thought maybe I had discovered some new cultivar and that I would become famous and would receive unlimited royalties from the new flowers and would be able to buy all the plants I wanted. But, alas, it was only a double daffodil, which was nothing new, only strange. So, I think it is a good flower for April Fool's Day.
Have a beautiful day!
