Welcome autumn!

don't be afraid to buy the pathetic looking daffodils from Trader Joe's...

because after you cut off a bit of the stems and put them in water, they will change from what you see on the left into what you see on the right. Then, they will make you happy for days and days. Thank you to the kind stranger who was in front of me in line several years ago who told me about this magic. I hope I am paying it forward right now.

Yep, I've had the same experience. You can't believe until you buy some and bring them home to some water what a wonderful display they will make. They just say "springtime"!
