pink? not so much...

in autumn of 2006 i planted a collection of pink daffodils ... the first winter was average for temps and moisture and in the spring their blossoms were yellow ... the next winter was bitterly cold with back to back to back blizzards and in the spring their blossoms were yellow ... and this past winter was a mix of bitterly cold or unseasonably mild temps with almost no moisture ... this is their third spring ... do those daffodils look pink to you? they do not look pink to me ... now, don't get me wrong - i think they are beautiful ... gorgeous ... yellow with a touch of peach ... but there is one thing they are not ... and that is PINK
i had a talk with them before the autumnal equinox
i asked them to think pink ...

yellow is good
peach is good, too

"And then my heart with pleasure fills,
And dances with the daffodils"
