I want to break free

I spotted this daffodil at the weekend which appeared to be trying to break freeย through this fence. So then of course I was singing to myself “I want to break free” in a Freddie Mercury style ๐Ÿ™‚


And here is another daffodil who is less bothered about escaping, but is still beautiful ๐Ÿ™‚

And here’s Freddie:




A little peek into the heart of one of our pale daffodils, taken yesterday evening.


Evening Daffodil


The evening sun was shining through this daffodil making it glow. It caught my eye. So of course I captured it with my camera ๐Ÿ™‚


Pale Daffodil


This is one of the daffodils in my garden. They’re not the standard daffs as they have pale creamy outer petals rather than being all yellow. All pale and frilly and all seem to be positioned with their heads tilting downwards, like demure young maidens!


Daffodil Heart

IMG_8494The Daffodils are out in force now and looking lovely. I decided to get a close up shot, focusing on the stigma and stamens in the heart of this Daffodil and I’m pleased that I got the focus just as I wanted. Such a lovely bright colour to brighten up these early spring days ๐Ÿ™‚



Spring Yellow

12679352804_0ac32eacf7_oI went for a walk yesterday to see how spring is coming along. I was pleased to find the daffodils have started to open ๐Ÿ™‚ It seems that spring is a very yellow month, as many of the flowers are yellow like the daffodils, for example celandines, crocuses (though they’re not all yellow!), and the gorse is flowering too.




Just a very quick note to say that the winds have lessened and power has come back on after many hours … and I saw my first daffodil flowers today! Things are looking up ๐Ÿ™‚


Daffodil Fly

Yesterday while on a walk we were looking out for insects, hoping to get a shot of a bee now that the weather was a little warmer. The only bees we saw flew off quickly so that didn’t really work out but Bruce spotted a fly on a daffodil and I was lucky enough to get this shot ๐Ÿ™‚
