Daffodils – Friday Flowers

To me daffodils are like ‘sunshine on a stem’. They are the yellow beacons I search out in those dull early mornings running for the station. And as the seasons change from winter to spring, my mom back in South Africa always asks, “are the daffodils out yet?” A kind of measure as to say, “don’t worry spring is around the corner”. So on my way to-and-from the station, I pass so many bright daffs, so I thought, let me see how many different ones I can spot on my route. So here they are, a line-up on my wall.

Don’t worry, no daffodils were hurt during the photography of this set, they all made it into a pretty vase at the end of the day.

    • Haha! No seriously, these I all picked walking through the park to and from station, I promise. Coming up soon though, will be flowers picked from the neighbours garden, with permission, of course. X

  1. On my way to see Facinating Aida last night in Truro, driving along the A390 there are broad grass verges, the rampant display of almost every type daff, and narcissi were breathtaking, as are the growing fields of daffs down here. They really should be on the tourist trail of things to see from january onwards! I agree with you, sunshine on a stick, makes me smile; similarly fields of sunflowers!! Have a good day x

    • That sounds amaising, Jenny. I love how they can just grow wild like tat, and how the multiply year after year. Thank you for your comment.

  2. Theoda what a stunning and unique display! LCS is fast-becoming by first port of call for all interiors inspiration. With a hayfever-ridden husband, blooms are out of the question in our house at this time of year so Friday Flowers is serving as the perfect substitute for the real thing. Thank you, Kate xx

    • Hello Kate, thank you for your kind words and support. Keep visiting, yesterday I photographed a nice Easter flower idea I’ll show on LCS coming up in two weeks time, you might just like that one too. Such a shame about your husband and the hayfever, maybe plant some pretty flowers in the garden, pollen-less ones. I’ll look into this and suggest a few to you soon.
