My blogger/Twitter pal Liz over at Gwirrel’s Garden publishes a lovely post on Fridays called “Friday Flowers”. Her photographs are exquisite and she has been a great source of inspiration to me over the years.
I pottered in the garden this afternoon, with camera in my hand and sun on my back looking for the ideal photos for my contribution to Friday Flowers. We have had some wonderful warm days, and everything is shedding its winter sleep and bursting into flower. This means, at long last, the daffodils which usually are in flower March and April and now are blooming in all their glory. I have lost some which are being eaten by snails but most are happy to bring sunshine into the garden.
There may be some purists out there who believe daffodils should be the standard bright yellow trumpet daffodil, the William Wordsworth, “I wandered lonely as a cloud” variety. However, I like the multi-headed double varieties and have a very pretty one in the front garden. It always reminds me of poached eggs.
So without further ado, here are my poached egg multi-headed daffodils.
With good weather forecasted for the weekend, why not find your local daffodil displays to visit courtesy of the NGS Garden Scheme.
