Something's come up

Yesterday I noticed that out back, by the pool, we were being stalked.

By an early-blooming narcissus paperwhite.

I didn't plant that. As you know, I avoid such activity. I can't grow anything except, apparently, squirrels.

Paperwhites bloom in profusion during the winter, but usually that's in pots. Indoors.

This brave gaggle of white blossoms showed up outside, where, until yesterday, we'd had an unseasonably warm spell.

As in, we were fixing to haul out the pool toys and check to see if the local snow cone stand had reopened.

The flower was a trifle confused perhaps, but that's understandable. I like its enthusiasm.

After all, lots of times, half the battle is simply showing up.

You do you, little paperwhite.

And that is all for now.
