The Last Day Of Autumn
Taking the time to tuck some bulbs into the flowerbeds last October has paid off with bursts of color and some divine floral scents. These narcissus are blooming merrily on the last day of autumn. If you need a dependable bulb for your garden, you might consider the hardy narcissus. They're avoided by most creatures, except snails, and in most areas, the bulbs can be left in the ground to multiply. They will return year after year on their own timetable, generating numerous stalks of blossoms to enjoy outside in your garden or indoors in bouquets.
And if you're in the mood for a Christmas carol, here's "What Child Is This?" by the Moody Blues.
