Today's Flowers: The Girls are Back in Town

IMG 1549

These daffs were labeled as imports from the United Kingdom when I bought them from the wholesaler in Waterbury. I guess these flowers that are among the first to brave the change in season from winter to spring can stand a little trip from the UK to the US. They even took it pretty well when the cashier plunked a dozen eggs on top of them. These are my favorite flowers; I'm glad their tough as well as lovely.

  4. Normally I don't like anything yellow, or single-blossom flowers, but daffodils are my favourite flower anyhow, for being able to withstand all the 'tough love' of a toddler's fist. I can't wait until I'm handed my first one of the year!

    The photo is beautiful -- Happy Spring!

  12. Beautiful photo Sandy. Never heard of daffs being imported before. Glad they stood the test of that initial rough bagging process ;) Thank you very much for sharing and have a great week.

  14. I can't believe they import bunches of daffodils from Britain? You learn something new every day, and I guess this is it for more today......

  16. These are lovely. I wish the retailers would stock them. I've never been able to find one that did. Love how this is lit, the shadow along the edge of the ruffle is marvelous.

  20. They are usually among the first to poke up out of the dirt in the park here ... once the rain ends and the mud is less muddy I plan on heading out to see what is popping .. that is a nice angle and a lovely reminder spring is on the way ..I sure hope its wearing boots

  21. I love daffodils! What a gorgeous capture, Sandy! Our neighbors just started blooming and such a beautiful bright spot in the green of their yard. Have a lovely day filled with lots of daffodils!

  22. Our Daffodils have been blooming for about three weeks now BUT I have never seen a Daffodil such as yours in photo . It must be a special kind. Ours have an inner "cup" (for lack of a better word) and then an outside "plate" -- that's what they remind me of if you laid one down on a table instead of putting in a vase. Sometimes they are all yellow and sometimes white edge and orange centers.

    No matter -- your flower is just beautiful!

  23. Thanks for sharing this sign of Spring with us. There's nothing like a yellow daffodil to brighten up a day.

  24. Your tough daffs are really beautiful. I love the yellow colour! And I love to see the little green leavetops peeping through the snow as they do now here in Austria!

  27. Great shot of the daffodils. Love daffodils.
    Have a nice day!

  28. Daffodils and bluebells are the epitome of an English spring. There really is no problem about shipping the bulbs from one continent to another as long as it is on the same hemisphere. North to south would be a different matter with the upside down seasons.

    Beautiful shot of your cheer in the garden.

  29. I took almost this exact shot but posted a different one.

    Looks like my new blog home isn't posting to your feeder.
