Ours aren't out yet but the ones planted by the council on the grass near the sea front are. They are beautiful to see. Just like Wordsworth's host.

Now there is a picture that says a lot or should I say the name says a lot.

PS - My husband spent just over week in Ireland - we might be moving over there - will know at the end of the month.

Beautiful shot. These flowers are sold here (NZ) to raise money for cancer research, once a year on Daffodil Day.

Very seasonal! There are none in our garden because I dug them up last year thinking they were weeds. I'm not very green-fingered unfortunately!

Jams, do you garden? Or do you just happen upon all these beautiful flowers?

The picture is lovely.

Happy WW!

jams o donnell said...

THanks everyone. Shelia, these flowers are from our garden. I would like to say it's beautifull laid out but the reality is that it's small and scruffy (we like it scruffy though!)

Lovely shot. The black background really sets it off. They seem to be flowering earlier every year. We have had some out since the end of January but then, SW England is very mild usually.

poor man's nicole richie said...

i used to live on a street named narcissus, i thought it was named after the greek myth character. LOL come to think of it all the streets in that village were named carnation, magnolia etc. hahahah.
thanks for educating me.
