Saturday Snapshot: Glories of Daffodils

You know that I love daffodils.  Well, I’ve been reveling in daffodils recently!  Safeway was selling daffodils in bunches of ten, three bunches for five dollars–which just seemed to me like an obvious invitation to buy 30 daffodils…  It was a gloomy, rainy week and the perfect time to have some indoor sunshine in flower form.

I couldn’t quite capture the great massed golden glory of them, but here are my best attempts.

    An exquisite bouquet. Since your blog does not have a scratch-and-sniff feature, I wonder, do they smell as good as they look? Some say daffodils have no scent, others say:
    A daffodil in early spring —
    the scent is like no other thing.
    Sweet with a hint of sour, and
    freshest in the morning hour.

    How do you keep your coffee table so free of clutter? Mine looks like an atomic bomb has gone off nearby!

    • I love the smell of daffodils–all fresh and sweet and springlike. I’ve been on the hunt for daffodil-scented candles, for winter months before the daffodils come up, but no luck so far.

      As to the lack of clutter, the responsible-sounding answer is that I try to clear off my coffee table every evening (which is true). But it’s also true that I move things when I’m taking pictures! There’s usually some books and papers lying about.

    Beautiful photos, all three. They are full of Wordsworthian splendour 🙂 Our daffs are blooming already, so early — I love the fearless yellow of massed daffodils.

    You are too humble – you DID capture the massed golden glory 🙂

    Love your bright yellow daffodils. One of my friends was just lamenting this morning that the daffodils are almost done here in Ohio. I guess we’ll have to look for them in the grocery store after that. Here’s Mine
