I’ve always been taught that “patience is a virtue” and this spectacular display of spring color is an example of such. These beds were originally planted back in mid-October (see Haworth NJ Landscaping) with masses of daffodil bulbs. We chose daffodils because of the large deer population; because deer, as a rule, tend to stay away from daffodils. Only members of the Amaryllis family, which includes daffodils, snowflakes and snowdrops, are truly deer and rodent proof.
The earliest history of Mothers Day dates back to the ancient annual spring festival the Greeks dedicated to maternal goddesses. The Greeks used the occasion to honor Rhea, wife of Cronus and the mother of many deities of Greek mythology. Ancient Romans, too, celebrated a spring festival, called Hilaria dedicated to Cybele, a mother goddess. It may be noted that ceremonies in honour of Cybele began some 250 years before Christ was born. The celebration made on the Ides of March by making offerings in the temple of Cybele lasted for three days and included parades, games and masquerades. The celebrations were notorious enough that followers of Cybele were banished from Rome.
