You get the picture

Before the last couple of days of snow showers, the daffodil crowds were yellowing out St James’ park in a vainglorious attempt to simulate Spring. But today the sun has crossed the equator and only now we can say that the season is finally here – though there may yet be wintry weather to come. I have noticed though that these flowers can shake off a dusting or two with a nod of the head.

“Beside the lake, beneath the trees,
Fluttering and dancing in the breeze”…

OK – the ponds in St James’ Park may not amount to Wordsworth’s lake district and these of course are hybrid daffs, not our subtler, native narcissus – but you get the picture!

For the still snowbound in the Northern Hemisphere, I wish you a hasty melt, and for those in the Southern Hemisphere, Autumn greetings. And if you like poetry, I have posted one to celebrate Spring today here

  1. Laura, that has to be one of your very best. I love it, the composition is especially well done and with the people , it is or may be one of my favorites of all that you have posted. Of course I’m a sucker for flowers anyway. I don’t think I could say enough about this shot. Blessings

    1. yes you are a sucker for flowers but many, many thanks Sherwood. The image was the third in a row as I tried to get some of the intermittent light into it – one had too much, the other virtually none. This playing with light is such a challenge!

  2. Hope winter weather will spare you and those gorgeous daffodils! We got new snow on Saturday, and it’s freezing. I’m hoping for a quick melt.
