Spring Part II

Each year, the first plant to bloom is a bush right next to our front door which we have been informed is called Daphne. The plant produces miniature clusters of wonderfully fragrant, virginally white flowers. A cut bouquet the size of your thumb can be brought indoors to perfume an entire room. The plant is such a delight that I frequently wonder why some horticulturist would name it after the girl that had the hots for Fred on Scooby Doo. I know there must be some connection, I just can’t find it.
