First Sign of Winter

These flowers remind me of Christmas as it was all the rage when I lived in Toronto (especially in the design shops I frequented) to force the bulbs to bloom indoors during our icy winters. Today my narcissus just bloomed on its own in my decidedly un-icy Californian garden!

In these days of rampant self-gifting and overabundance it seems appropriate that the narcissus can represent selfishness in Victorian floriography.

Narcissus just bloomed in my garden today  –  a sign of spring for most but means winter to me.
