Twenty years ago, I transplanted these daffodils
from my Gramma Allie's farm
into the woods outside the south windows . . .

About 3 years after that,
I came home from a day out.
Vince had stayed home with
John, age 5, and Lee, age 2.
John was so proud to show me
the wildflowers he had found in the woods.
He had dug up bunches and bunches of daffodils
and moved them near the house
because he knew how much I loved flowers.
What a sweetheart even then.
