A place where narcissism is a good thing is the garden, as you can see in this gorgeous narcissus we have in ours. A cheerier flower it’s hard to imagine and one that spreads joy to any who look at it. Apparently, as my Greek friends will know, the name comes from the Greek term ‘narco’ for ‘numb’, as in narcotic, but in this case possibly refers to the intoxicating perfume they give off. When I read that information I went out and smelled this single flower (the only one of its type in our garden).And that is absolutely correct! I almost fell over with the fragrance! 😉 Actually, it really does smell wonderful. As it is beside the huge magnolia tree we have, which is full of strongly perfumed flowers just now, I didn’t know anything else in the garden had a scent at all. You will have to imagine the sweet smell, but you can see the beauty here. Both beautiful and sweet smelling, it is a perfect little package of delight. I wish it would last. At least we can keep enjoying the photograph long after it is gone. Have a lovely day, everyone. A Flower a Day #236
