Its my birthday today.Happy birthday to me.I went plant shopping last week and bought three bunches of Daffodils from Hampsons.These started to flower almost as soon as they went into Cats Vase.
I bought myself a Witch hazel for ten pounds after dreaming about one for ages.
My garden Daffodils are still green stems only, with the flowers a few weeks away.
Wordworth loved Daffodils, and many blogs use his poem about them waving in the wind.There is something about the cheerfull yellow faces and green strap leaves heralding the start of Springtime in the UK.
I remember all the grass verges around Cheltenham being planted with tens of thousands of Daffodils.They always look spectacular flowering and waving en masse.
I spent yesterday helping Cat move out of her house.Aching limbs today from moving boxes and bags.The Dafffodils need to be moved today.I will photograph them today.

Happy Birthday, David. I wish you many pleasant returns.
I think I read a while back that you were preparing to move house. I hope your tired limbs will have repaired themselves by then.
Kindest regards,
