The Growing Zone - Day 21




More reasons for planting bulbs - and plan on visiting Dallas Bloom Days in March and April!
So why is the beautiful Narcissus flower associated with the awful narcissistic personality? Well mythology tells us that Narcissus was a beautiful man who spurned love from all who sought him out because of his own vanity. The goddess Artemis made Narcissus fall in love with his own reflection in a pond from which he could not leave because he was so enamored with himself. He died at that spot and a white flower, with a blood-red rimmed cup, grew every spring where he died.
