Singularity

Our daffodils, or many of them, are open. I noticed that they were all facing south (see arrow at back) although two in the foreground didn't quite make it that far. One stalwart soul, however, is doing her own thing and facing north. In case you miss it, the arrow in the foreground points to said flower. I call this daffodil Allyson, and if you can't read the name in Blogger's shrunken version, you may (or may not) detect it on the clickable version.



Full disclosure: I saw the singularity of the flower and named it Allyson, but Cuppa was the one bright enough to suggest that I take the picture and blog about it. I won't go into the full Allyson story here, but there are those who will understand and, hopefully, not be displeased.

Guess I don't know the Allyson story. That was a neat idea.

Allyson. That's a nice name for a daffodil.

I wonder what star Allyson is following? Unusual for sure.

Daffodils are my favourite flower and i always have a bunch in my home at this time of year. But they don't have names!

Diana said...

I don't know the Allison story either but I don't think that there is anything wrong with this flowers urgency to grow it's own way!

You are naming your daffodils? Um, are you okay these days?
We have blackflies. Three weeks early. Words cannot express what I feel.

Have to admire any living thing that doesn't follow the crowd and goes her own way. Or perhaps she's just defective ;)

MG: Maybe we should now hope for a good frost to deal with the blackflies.

All: So you're wondering about Allyson, eh? heh heh

Allyson said...

Hahaha. I just won't look where I'm supposed to eh?

You don't tend to follow the crowd for sure.
