Weekly photo challenge: dawn daffodils

Daffodils at dawn

It was suggested that the most appropriate image for this week’s photo challenge: early bird would be a shot of the tousled hair I’m sorrowfully sporting most mornings when I awake, but I decided to spare you that.

Instead, here are some rain-soaked daffodils: a lovely cultivar I haven’t seen before with flowers in soft shades of cream and white. I was so excited to have the chance to enjoy a behind-the-scenes visit to this historic bulb nursery when the plants were at the peak of flowering that I was hopping amongst the daffodils before the sun had fully risen.

I’ll have much more to share from our visit to Brent and Becky Heath’s wonderful nursery, teaching gardens and private garden when I get chance to catch my breath, so watch this space!

    We are moving soon. I plan to add daffodils to my next home…I always have been too busy with other things to plant the bulbs in fall, but this time, I’m determined to do it! I’ll let you know how it goes in April, 2016.

    Daffodils…I started out loving tulips but they are feckless. In the years I’ve lived in Michigan I have come to truly venerate the daffodils in all their glorious forms. Nice photo. Interesting cultivar.
