Cheerful Investment

When you have only two pennies left in the world, buy a loaf of bread with one, and a lily with the other.
Chinese Proverb

From the supermarket, the other day, I brought home a baguette and a daffodil. The baguette has satisfied tummies for a couple of meals while the daffodil, sitting in the centre of the kitchen table, continues to brighten our cloudy mornings. Three dollars can generate a lot of light and warmth when spent on cheerful beauty!

The weather man here in the UK reported seeing daffodils in bloom yesterday - but not in the supermarket...

Surely daffodils blooming in England in January stand as unequivocal evidence of global warming! Now's the time for the TT to buy resort property on Great Slave Lake!
