The Mystery Flower at My Front Door

About a month ago, I noticed an odd hole in the ground in front of my door, at the edge where the lawn meets the pavement. I even asked my husband what he thought it was. We had not made it and it was obvious the dog hadn't either because it was too small for his normal "paw"-work.

Then after last week's snow melted, this plant sprouted.

Yesterday, it bloomed!
It turns out to be a lovely, small daffodil.

Buona Primavera!

I still can't figure out what animal decided to plant the flower here. If I were in the US, I would have said a squirrel, but they don't live in Padua. Any guesses?

  1. Che bella! Il primo segno di primavera! (forse e' stato il lavoro di un cinghiale selvatico - sto scherzando! immagino che loro mangino i bulbi invece di piantarli!!) ;-)
