Daffodils in the Sunshine
Friends maybe you know the poem by William Wordsworth about Daffodils - "I Wandered Lonely as a Cloud". It is claimed that it was inspired by an event on April 15, 1802, in which Wordsworth and his sister, Dorothy, came across a "long belt" of daffodils.
Now that the sun has melted the snow, all the daffodils have come out together.
They are scattered all around the house, and remind us of this famous poem, which goes on to say -
When all at once I saw a crowd,
A host, of golden daffodils; Beside the lake, beneath the trees,
Fluttering and dancing in the breeze.
Continuous as the stars that shine
And twinkle on the Milky Way, They stretch'd in never-ending line
Along the margin of a bay: Ten thousand saw I at a glance,
Tossing their heads in sprightly dance.
I think they look very impressive, and encourage us to plant some more, hopefully making them even more stunning next year. No doubt I will be writing about this come the autumn.
This is my ad hoc update and diary describing how I am developing our garden at Trostrie Cottage in Galloway. You can see the garden for yourself if you book a self catering friendly holiday @The Shieling which is attached to Trostrie Cottage
