4-15-16 BLESSINGS IN BLOOM: Daffodils This time of year Colorado is sprinkled with daffodils! These glorious flowers brighten the landscape and bring a smile to most everyone who sees them. They are easy to grow, long lasting and to Christians might resemble the cup/chalice surrounded by pedals/Holy Communion. The daffodil is a reminder of Jesus at the last supper, "Take this cup . . . take this bread . . . do this in memory of me".
