Move Quickly!

Trader Joe's is selling a bundle of 10 daffodil stems for $1.29. Since Farmer's Market fresh flowers run from $2.50 to $6 per bouquet, this is a sensational price.

At home, I cut off the bottom half-inch of stem, stuck them in water in a vase and almost literally stood back and watched them bloom! I left the house for an hour and when I returned two of them had already begun to show bright yellow at their tips. This morning they were in full bloom!

They'll probably die as quickly as they bloomed (of exhaustion) but while they're here, I will enjoy them immensely. Daffodil Yellow is a mood as much as a flower!
