…OK maybe that’s a little misleading. I still don’t know what gardener planted these daffodils many years ago, but I was able to snap a photo of them last week with my phone when I happened to be sitting at the stop light in the perfect spot. There are still a couple more spots like this that I have yet to photograph because they aren’t in a good stopping spot. This one might be one of my favorites, though, because I also love the stone steps.
I have to admit something here. I hate the book The Secret Garden. Hated it. But I do love the idea of a secret garden. I’ve always been mildly obsessed with old, run-down houses, with thoughts of roaming the halls and trying to put together the story of who lived here, why the house was abandoned, and when.

And all of them (those and my old ones) have only really lasted a day or two because it was hot when they bloomed. Lame. I need better tulips that will do better for me year after year. […]
