Day 75: daffodils

Daily details from the garden to bring you inspiration throughout the year


I have to ease myself in gently to daffodil season. I find many of them hard to love in spite of their unpretentious bonhomie, but I’m learning to appreciate an elongated trumpet here, a graceful, recurved petal there. And then there’s the occasional clump of tiny ‘Tête á Tête’, hastily thrust into a corner of flowerbed once their blooms have faded, only to return each year to bring joy to their forgotten corner of the garden. These are hard-working survivors, and it would be ungenerous in the extreme for me to turn my nose up at that.
