55 Flash Fiction Friday #64: Waiting


Damn daffodils. They've been taunting me for weeks. Daffodils are her favorite you see. And you can't get them from the florist. I've tried. You can find everything else, but not these stubborn little yellow buggers. Maybe they don't hold up well after they're cut. So I'm stuck waiting for these guys.

Grow, damn you.

In the midst of that green, I see a well-wrapped bud that did not yield to the snow.

Seems they come around in their own time. Takes a while, but they do come.

Awesome, loved the frustration of this piece. Reminds me of my son's pumpkin patch, which he waters every day, hoping, waiting...

Lovely and thoughtful 55. In upper northern California, mine are blooming right now. I love them too. And, yesterday I found a bunch at Trader Joe's with just the buds. They've opened now and are surely some buttery yellow cheer.

I love daffodils and used to grow them when I lived in Colorado. I think they are too fragile perhaps for the florists? Hope they grow into beauties!
