There is a touching story in the Weeders Digest which comes free with a subscription to Green Prints called "Love and Daffodils Forever, A husband's final gift". I won't spoil the tale or even hint at what it is. If you subscribe to Green Prints it comes as part of a bonus gift. Green Prints is a gardening magazine that shares stories about the side of gardening: the joy, humor, frustrations, and heart of gardening in fine prose and fine art.

Our First Daffodil
We have our first daffodil! Very cool. When we moved onto our property back in 2000 we had daffodils blooming all over. Since then they have multiplied in clumped bunches to a point where they just don't bloom as much anymore. Bruce and I have been wanting to divide the clumps for a few years now. We started yesterday, digging up the clumps of daffodils and spreading them around. We have our work cut out for us and I am sure it won't all get done this year, but one has to start somewhere. Not sure if this will set them back from blooming this year, but this is an investment into next years bloom.
