From A Daffodil’s Heart

Every year at the beginning of March, as if on cue from an invisible conductor, our daffodils flower.
From buds gently enfolding their secrets
On the back-path (38)
They slowly unfurl into golden trumpets
First Spring Flowers (3)
Heralding the start of Spring.
First Spring Flowers (1)
And from their innermost heart comes the whisper of a promise :
First Spring Flowers (4)
That warmth and sunshine will soon be on their way.

    I love the pictures and the words... it reminds me of Wordsworth's "Daffodils".

  7. Beautiful. I miss daffodils - we used to have them blooming along our driveway in the springtime, along with narcissus. Sadly, they don't bloom in Florida... so I must feed my hunger for them through lovely photos like yours!

  14. "And then my heart with pleasure fills,
    And dances with the daffodils."

    Are there any more delightful harbingers of spring?

  16. Your blog looks so interesting. I will learn so much about your beautiful island. Thank you for visiting way down in Texas about my snippets. I'm a bit of a gypsy myself. I last about 2 years and then am ready to see what's next.
