More uplifting cheer. More spring flowers

These daffodils appear days after Christmas.

Just beside the village pond.

This year and every single year.

I'm retired and living in North Yorkshire, where I walk as often as I can, write, volunteer, and travel as often as I can.

    1. I agree. Do you have them much in Portugal? The French love their perce-neiges (lovely name!) but the massed urban displays we enjoy aren’t a thing there and I used to miss them – though we had wild ones in the mountains instead.


      1. We tend to have narcissus here and there but more commonly a wild white iris that I love. Really cold but bright this morning. Michael was seriously unwell last night so we may be taking slow steps later for a little while. 😦

      1. Erm … dunno. Sorry. But I’ve just Googled and found this … ‘Add a layer of gravel – place a layer of sharp edge gravel or grit below and above your bulbs when you plant them.’

  1. There are early varieties and in Cornwall there will be fields of daffodils, and I recall very early ones in Surrey on the way to my daughter, but you are very north. Such a pleasure to see the first daffs 😊

  2. Gosh – they are early for the north, but all the more welcome for that. I took some pictures yesterday but they might as well have been in black and white (except they turned out blue and black!)
