Aspects of England: Daffodils

One part of living in this country I really love? Seeing daffodils growing. It’s one of the first flowers I noticed when I arrived in March 2009, when the sky was still gray but greenery was beginning to return and flowers were starting to bloom. Daffodils of course being bright yellow are relentlessly cheerful flowers, and seem a perfect sign that winter is on its way out and spring and warmth are just about to arrive. This shot I took of them is on Parker’s Piece in Cambridge, but I’ll soon have a picture of the ones I planted in a pot outside the back door and in the garden too, because I unreasonably proud of them (unreasonably because they are just so easy to plant – into ground, and months later, up they come!)
