rounds by which we may ascend

Slept in a little this morning, even so, there were hardly any conversations waiting for me in my inbox. However, one relative/inlaw was talking about daffodils (in French). Daffodils! Isn’t that a wonderful thing to think about!

The colder weather has perhaps something to do with this latching on to the daffodil-thought. But warmer temps today, to go with the fact that I just had to find a photo of Mom’s daffodils–both in her garden, and a boquet that she took a picture of. Included in the now-facebook-cover photo, is a quote from a famous poem, which you can find here if you want the whole thing.

Not a reality yet this year (except for the Cancer fund-raisers), but SOON!

And, not to cheat for today’s poetry, here’s a short one for you (another old one):

All common things, each day’s events,
That with the hour begin and end,
Our pleasures and our discontents,
Are rounds by which we may ascend.
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
