Ode to the Daffodil

A host of golden daffodils;  Beside the lake, beneath the trees,  Fluttering and dancing in the breeze. – William Woodsworth

  3. Beautiful. Although they are not the earliest spring flowers they do arrive when spring has actually got established. No wonder we love them!

    They really do remind us that winter is over EG! 🙂


  4. Spectacular!

  5. Ohhhh. nothing says spring quite like daffodils!

    So true Beckie, so true! 🙂


  6. How beautiful is this………….? Very!!

    Why thank you very much Darla! 🙂


  7. Hi Racquel, the daffodils are the stuff of spring’s magic, turning browns to brights and cheering our hearts after winter’s gloom. There is no such thing as too many of them. Your photos are wonderful.

    They really do have a way of cheering us up after a long gloomy winter! Nope I keep ordering more varieties here lately and have not been disappointed. Thanks Frances! 🙂


  8. They are just simply beautiful Racquel !
    What a nice way to present them too … that is a great photo program girl !

    Thanks Joy, I’m glad you enjoyed my ode to Daffodils presentation! The program is called Photoscape & it was a free download online. Can you believe that? 🙂


  9. I love daffodils! I just wished they bloomed longer. Next year I want to try several different types. Good post Racquel–love the quote!

    That’s why I’ve been adding more varieties, since they have different bloom times. Thanks Linda! 🙂


  10. What a lovely collage!

    I’m glad you enjoyed it Sue! Thanks for stopping by today! 🙂


  11. What a beautiful post Racquel. I love that quote and you have a great collage of photos to accompany them.

    Thank you Kathleen, I’m glad you enjoyed the quote & collage! 🙂


  12. Beautiful photos. One can never have too many daffodils.

    Thanks Grace, I agree completely! 🙂


  13. I love it! One of my favorite poems–Wordsworth knew how to create just the perfect image of the daffodil. They make my heart “fill with pleasure”, too.

    Thanks Rose, it has become one of my favorite poems too. Happy flowers for a happy spring! 🙂


  14. I love the little one. My neighbor has loads of those and they are sweet. Very pretty collage today.

    Me too Anna, the tiny ones are so precious. Thanks! 🙂


  15. Wow! So Tiny! That’s cute. Wordsworth always knows the right words!

    Aren’t the tiny ones adorable! I agree completely Chandramouli. 🙂


  16. What a gift! Thank you!

    You are quite welcome DP! 🙂


  17. Absolutely beautiful! Jean

    Thank you Jean! 🙂


  18. My daffs are blooming now. I have ‘late’ daffs and hope that some other spring flowers will catch up with them!


    It’s always nice to have a variety that bloom at different times so we can enjoy them a bit longer, don’t you think? 😉


  19. Lovely montage, I like how you are putting these together.
    I also enjoy the pale daff. (Bottom right)

    Thanks Karen, I’ve been having a bit of creative fun making these collages. 🙂 That pale one is Thalia, isn’t it pretty?! 🙂


  20. How pretty! Don’t you just love Spring?

    Thanks Balisha, it is my favorite season of all! 🙂
