Have you every wondered where the term Narcissism came from... well according to a Greek fairytale, there was a very handsome young Greek boy named Narcissus who was so enchanted by his own reflection that he feel into a pool of water and was then turned into a Narcissus flower by the Greek Gods as punishment. The narcissus flower is otherwise know as the Daffodil. Pretty interesting fairytale if you ask me.

Well there you have it... Sunday Morning Bloom's & a history lesson all rolled into one! Now I'm off to enjoy this absolutely gorgeous day in NYC!

Slan agat!
