New: “Narcissus”

There’s an old shed on the sheep meadow behind my house, a decaying outbuilding that had belonged to a farmer who’s property now includes my house. Behind that shed, right along the road that bisects my property from the farm, a small cluster of daffodils (my mother had always called them narcissus or jonquils) pops up every spring, breaking through the brush, brambles and dry grass that surround this old building. That cluster has been there for years, and each April it has served as a visual indicator that spring is here. We’re a few weeks away from the annual emergence of this blast of yellow, but I’m impatient, and decided to force their blooming early. “Narcissus” 70 x 52
