growing up I was lucky
to have a slope outside my bedroom window
covered in unpredictable flowers
some years the snowdrops were there, some years they stayed asleep
sometimes little purple ones
sometimes little pink ones
and always the daffodils.
If we had devoted any time to tending them, they wouldn't have stayed, I believe. One year the birds were extra careless at the feeder and scattered the seeds and a month later we had sunflowers nodding heavy heads at at the sky.
