Deluge of Daffodils

Some friends of ours cultivate daffodils, and I had to share some of these beautiful photos. I apologize that some of them are more in focus than others - I hope you like them. Some of them are also from my in-laws' garden and a scant two are from mine.

To put these next two pictures into size perspective, these are Willow's hands, not mine:

When I was a child, I used to have a poster of Cicely Baker's Apple Blossom Fairy on my bedroom wall. Willow and I were out walking yesterday and we saw some low-pruned apple trees in bloom so I had to take a picture of her. And yes, she is looking away on purpose.

Sometimes that is the only way I get a picture of her with her eyes open...

Beautiful Daffodils, I love those, darn..mine didn't come up this year. Willow's eye opened picture is beautiful as well :)

Those pictures are great! I didn't realise there were so many different kinds of daffodils! (I like the white and pink one).

The picture of Willow is awesome too!

Oh, don't you just love daffodils? Nothing says spring like daffodils.

And that pic of Miss Thing is really stunning!

Lovely. And makes me really want spring to be here - for real.
