Daffodil

I think its safe to say its officially spring. The trees are in bud, the blossom is flowering, the bulbs are bursting and the flowers are...well...flowering! I don't think anything says spring more so than the humble Daffodil. In Cheltenham the parks, gardens and roadside verges are beginning to wash over with a sea of yellow. Beautiful.

I wander'd lonely as a cloud
That floats on high o'er vales and hills,
When all at once I saw a crowd,
A host, of golden daffodils;
Beside the lake, beneath the trees,
Fluttering and dancing in the breeze.

By William Wordsworth (1770-1850)

How lovely! We've got daffs appearing but the flowers haven't opened yet - but we're always a couple of weeks behind up here, I've noticed.

Ha! I love this photo, but here, as you saw on my photo, there are no flowers or greenery yet.

Daffodils are one of my most loved flowers,and I had to learn this poem as a child.
