The bright, sunny day of yesterday has given way to torrential rains, thunder and lightning. My poor daffodils bent over in the rain, so I picked them. Those flowers are just so darn pretty and last such a short time. As one of my friends said about them today, "Better to have had them even just a short time and enjoy them, than to never have had then before." I guess so, but I'd still like to have a field of them for longer than a week.
