The Shy Daffodil

  Thank goodness I grew and drew my own  this year.  The word has come from the Lake District that our coldest winter in thirty years has delayed the onset of Wordsworth's host of golden daffodils. There has even been a plea for volunteers to report sightings of them.  Many daffodowndilly tourists will be disappointed but they should make for a spectacular Easter.


  1. So wise. Mine are popping up all over the beds-honestly I am not a yellow person (as they say) but I love lovely dafs and the like. I have lots of other little things emerging too-but can remember what all- I will picture you when I have a crop. gaye

  2. Oh thanks, Gaye. It does feel bleak here at the moment.

  3. We've got a small area fenced off so the mules and sheep and cattle can't get to it, and the daffodils are in full bloom. Elsewhere they've been taken off down to their dark green nubs.

    That's a lovely drawing.

  4. Thank you rurritable. I regret I had to colour the drawing on the computer because the sketch wasn't on good enough paper to take water colour.
    The daffodils will have cheered you considerably.. I suppose we'll just have to be patient.

  5. love your sunny daffodils.

  6. That portrait of daffodils is magical!
