Spring might have arrived very late but the daffodils are all here now and they look lovely in the garden.
Since the rear garden faces south, all we see from the kitchen window are the backs of these flowers. This is the third of fourth year since we planted the lawn daffodils and this year, they’re probably the best they’ve ever been. If wish we had planted more, but then there really would be nowhere to step to the place I took the picture without crushing some of them.
Each year the daffodils appear in a very different looking garden. The size and shape of the borders has changed a great deal since they were planted and that’s why we now have blocks of daffodils half in soil, half grass and right in the middle of the arches making it somewhat tricky to get through. I sometimes wonder that if we had finished the borders first, we would have then planted the daffodils in better positions, but then they wouldn’t look so natural, as though they were always meant to be there.
