— Dinner, February 10
My room mate received a bundle of daffodils on Thursday night. They had not yet bloomed, and were just long green stems with buds on top which were waiting to become something more. Almost by the hour, one could watch as the buds started to transform and become tips of a petal, into a petal, and finally into a full flower. It took about 36 hours from when I first saw them until they fully bloomed, and I have to say it was probably the most beautiful thing that I have ever seen.
