Autumn Oddity

Today, November 7, 2008, I have a daffodil blooming. Yes, you read that correctly.

I'm not quite sure what to make of it. I believe it to be part of a mix of daffodils planted in 1996. This particular one, I think, tries to bloom every year too early and gets zapped. Maybe it has decided to try blooming really early this year. So far, so good although we had been warmer than usual. I noticed the foliage coming up and sorta thought it odd, but given how I cram things in, there was always the chance it was something my blue Roman Hyacinth....It would have been too early for that also, come to think of it.

Whatever. It's nice to see.

Hokie Colors

Today I had a revelation. Haven't you ever wondered who would put together colors like maroon and orange (besides the Hokies, of course)? Well, I now know....Nature, that's who. And, it's very pretty...
