A Host of Golden Daffodils …

The news just seems to get grimmer.  So I stepped out into the garden to find cheering daffodils to share. Here.

  1. Thank you Margaret… Flowers DO cheer us up no end. But you’re not going to send a Get Well Soon card to BoJo, aren’t you? 🤨😊

  2. Lovely – do you have a large garden then? You seem to have a lot of daffodils. And trees, I look forward to seeing more as we have to #StayAtHome. Must admit I got a bit cross listening to the Devon and Cornwall chief of police (or whatever he is called) today. Someone had emailed our local news service about having to exercise locally, saying that if they drive to a nearby beach they can walk for half an hour and only see 4 people. Now they are confined to walking locally (as everyone else is) they see upwards of 40 people in half an hour – surely not what is good social distancing? We (the OH) and I went up our local hill today where we came across a father and his 3 sons, who were loving the freedom of running around the hill, but sadly didn’t stay the recommended 6ft away from us as they bounded past. It is quite a dilemma.

    1. We rent on a larger property with a huge garden. Our lovely landlords encourage us to enjoy it too. As to the exercise thing, I can see how town is difficult. We can walk for 2 – 4 hours daily, which is what I have been doing, and only occasionally meet a dog walker. Who’ll give me a very wide berth. I hope we don’t get total lock in. My daughter in Spain can only go out to queue at her nearest shop, a whole 50 metres away.

      1. Ah, yes, I remember you saying that when I commented about the walled garden (I could be mismembering). And queuing to shop is totally alien. I had to do that yesterday. The shop was quiet though as they only allow 25 people in at a time, but I dashed through as quickly as possible anyway. And got chicken! Yay! No flour or eggs still.


  3. Beautiful photographs as always. The daffodils are pushing up through the soil giving us hope. All we need to do is look around to witness Earth’s annual rebirth. It gives me hope for better days ahead. Peace, stay safe and well.

  4. Hi Margaret, I am glad to see that you can still wander lonely as as a cloud, or at least almost.
    The daffs are lovely and optimistic as people have said. We all need such rays of sunshine in these times.
    Keep safe.

      1. Yes winter is not a wonderful prospect for us although conditions in our region are very mild relative to some other parts of the country, and are extremely mild compared to winters in the UK.

  5. These really are radiant. I’m just back from a brisk walk around a blustery and 98% deserted town and have enjoyed seeing all the rainbow posters in the windows.
