Each spring, we share daffodils with our clients/friends/neighbors and sprinkle them throughout Minneapolis.
It's a little tradition that helps take the edge off these last few weeks of winter. In return, Instagram fills with lovely photos of #DAFFODILBOMB around the city. Share your photos and keep the tradition blooming!
One of our sweet clients shared this poem with us in honor of the #DAFFODILBOMB project. Enjoy!
I Wandered Lonely as a Cloud
I wandered lonely as a cloud
That floats on high o'er vales and hills,
When all at once I saw a crowd,
A host, of golden daffodils;
Beside the lake, beneath the trees,
Fluttering and dancing in the breeze.
Continuous as the stars that shine
And twinkle on the milky way,
They stretched in never-ending line
Along the margin of a bay:
Ten thousand saw I at a glance,
Tossing their heads in sprightly dance.
The waves beside them danced; but they
Out-did the sparkling waves in glee:
A poet could not but be gay,
In such a jocund company:
I gazed—and gazed—but little thought
What wealth the show to me had brought:
For oft, when on my couch I lie
In vacant or in pensive mood,
They flash upon that inward eye
Which is the bliss of solitude;
And then my heart with pleasure fills,
And dances with the daffodils.
