GARDENS: A spring ritual

This morning a few of us were waiting for a meeting to start and chatting about how our gardens were faring during this very strange spring. I mentioned that the previous afternoon I had spent maybe 20 minutes (until my back started protesting) "tying down" daffodil leaves to make room for the annuals.
Talk about a universal topic! People chimed in about their own methods for taming the unruly daffodil foliage, either looping them with rubber bands, braiding them or twisting them. Others -- those with more real estate to play with -- simply weed-whack around them let them die back of their own volition.
Honestly, the interesting discussion could have gone on for ages, if we hadn't been called to order by our taskmaster/chairwoman.
