Good things come in big packages too!
- When you are a town employee for almost 14 years and many of your
co-workers grew up in said town, you come to feel like an integral
part of the community even without living there. Such being the case,
I was so pleasantly surpised to learn of a large field of daffodils
not too far from my work for the first time this spring. It is owned
by the Town's Natural Resources Dept., having been given as a gift by
the former owner of the property.
I have gone there twice in the last couple of weeks - the first time
only about half of the daffodils were blooming and the second time
more like 85 percent. After walking up a hill through the woods, there
is a nice wooden bench to sit on and big field of daffodils that have
been planted with empty rows left for walking between them. One other
visitor there guessed it was about an acre in size.
So many flowers all together amongst the trees and wooded area are
stunning in their impact. The sheer number of daffodils creates a
sunny sea of yellow cheerfulness. While I often subscribe to the
opinion that good things often come in small packages, this is a case
where a large quantity and scope makes a much more impressive visual
I took some photos of the daffodil field called Parsons Reserve and
they can be viewed at my gallery album:
Discovering this treasure for the first time feels like a real gift of
spirit to me. I envision that a spiritual seeking and gratitude for
the divine in natural beauty opened the door to learning of this
precious flower oasis. I cherish it immensely and am grateful for
these delights that seem to stem from a God-focused life.
