daffodil, spring, photography


Over recent weeks I’ve seen loads of people participating in #MySundayPhoto and publishing awesome images of flowers. I felt I just had to give it a go myself with this daffodil picture.

I spotted these particular specimens as I was driving down a country lane in the Cotswolds during the Easter break. Look closely at the plant in the foreground; have you ever seen a daffodil quite like this?

I may be mistaken, but it struck me that there were a very large number of leaves. I’m no expert so I imagine it’s a special variety of daffodil. Perhaps a green fingered reader knows more and can comment below? I’d hate to think I’d unwittingly photographed a triffid and negelcted to tell the appropriate authorities.

More to the point, with the arrival of the warmer weather, spring does seem to have arrived at last. I’ve turned the soil in the vegetable patch so we’re ready for this year’s growing season. We’re all set and the kids and I will be planting seeds in the next few days. Wish us luck!

    All the best with your seed planting! I’m sure you’ll have lots of fun. I think they’re daffodils. Fab capture. Love the blurring of the background and focus … as well as the layers in the flower and the colour, I struggle so bad to capture yellow flowers well. Good job! #aNoviceMumCommentLuv

  2. It’s probably a special variety, but I’m rubbish with flowers and garden stuff, although I do know that I really, really love daffodils! A few of ours are starting to die now, which is kind of sad, but good because it means that spring is well underway!

  3. are you sure you didn’t stick some extra petals on. I sent the picture to my mum in the UK and she says it’s called Double Smiles, but not to quote her on that….lol

    I’ve seen this type around our local National Trust properties I think. I love the intricacy, I’d like to draw them actually 🙂

  5. Don’t worry John it’s not a triffid… it’s a double headed Daffodil.
    I have some in my garden that I planted last autumn. I love them and you’ve photographed it brilliantly. I love the front focus with the blurred background. I’ve got a bunch of them on the table near me as I type. Not sure I like the perfume that much though :/
    Enjoy your veggie plot and planting

  6. I was just thinking yours look very different to standard daffodils. Lots more petals inside. It’s always lovely to see the bright yellow peeking out of a blog page!

  7. Ah this is the lesser spotted Elephant Daffodil….ah who am I kidding I have no idea

    Thank you for linking up
