Back in Early April

This less than wonderful photo shows the bit of stitching I was able to do last evening on "April's Daisy". 

I want to go back in time a bit to the beginning of April. 
That's when this field of daffodils was at its best.

While there are a few daffodils along side the road...

...by far the best display is at the edge of the Oak grove.

I don't know how many years ago the originals were planted, but they've naturalized and multiplied over the last several years. 

The display is one I look forward to each year.

Exuberant

Charming

Bountiful

The great thing is that no one picks them.
They're left alone so that everyone might enjoy them.

The  "host of golden daffodils" is to me, one of the first signs of Spring.

Nature is often a wonderful gardener!

I love naturalized flowers! I did that at my old house in NH but don't know if the new owners left them or not as they did dig out all the other plants that were there.

A great little start. I enjoyed the daffodil shots. Even my late blooming ones are almost finished. I will miss them but the dahlias are breaking ground.(I don't take them out I'm too tired by fall)

These really are some of my favorite flowers. Which is a bummer because the season is so so so short for them in the yard. :(
