This is a wonderful story, Juliet. I think we often get so focused on the nuts and bolts of the reduce-reuse-recycle part of Earth Day that we forget that a part of our job here is to create a little more beauty as well. Thanks!

What a lovely story. You've made me want to run out & plant daffodils! We will mark Earth Day by transplanting a camellia my dad grew from seed in our yard. A thing of beauty indeed!

Thanks for your comments. It all really came about when I was walking my dog yesterday and taking photos of all the spring growth.

As a 6yr old child, I remember planting daffodils at my father's house. He asked us not to pick the daffodils when they bloomed so we could have more each year and we stuck to that rule.

I forgot to mention that the place does exist. It is in running Springs (S. Bernardino Mountains). Some people who live in California kindly confirmed this for me.
