Flower of the Month: Daffodil

Because it is one of the first flowers to bloom in spring, daffodils are seen as a representation of rebirth and new beginnings. They are also thought to represent inspiration, forgiveness, and creativity.

The Daffodil is for you if you are a cheerful person and you may be delighted by bright colors, baby chicks, and walking through long grass. If you’ve ever wanted to paint a room in your house yellow you may be a daffodil girl.

Do you like white or yellow daffodils better?

Dear Reader,

This week I’ve finally gotten a chance to breathe and so now I’m going to try to get back to writing weekly newsletters. Last week I submitted the first draft of my undergraduate thesis which is on the spiritual nature of food and eating. I’m very excited about it but it's taken a lot of time this semester.

I got a bit of a late start ordering seeds so I am just ordering them this week. I do have seeds from last year that have gotten started already. Last week I ordered lilies to grow for June. Last year was my first year growing them and I learned that they grow really well in bulb crates in the greenhouse.

My favorite thing that I read this week was TS Eliot’s poem The Hollow Men. It starts out with the lines:

We are the hollow men

We are the hollow men

We are the stuffed men

The imagery shows that men are spiritually hollow but materially stuffed like scarecrows. It’s a peculiar poem because it doesn’t follow the traditional form of poetry but rather uses fragmented sentences to convey meaning. It’s very thought-provoking and I recommend reading it. What have you been enjoying this week?

Your flower farmer,

Annika DeMaster
