  1. Miriam, a wonderfully vibrant display of daffodils and I can sense Spring … tantalisingly close! πŸ˜€ You capture the warmth and hope beautifully in your poem and I love the line of: β€˜Liquid gold running through my heart.’ It never ceases to amaze me how much can be said in so few words! ❀️

    • Michael, my response to you is below Jaqui’s . For some funny reason my
      answer back t you – five – just jumped away. Puzzled.
      But scroll down and there it will be.

  2. It is my pleasure Michael, thank you for kind comment.

    As another preview I will quote a verse or so of Worldsworth famous Daffodils.
    ” I wandered lonely as a cloud
    That floats on high o’er vales and hills,
    When all at once I saw a crowd,
    A host, of golden daffodils;
    Beside the lake, beneath the trees,
    Fluttering and dancing in the breeze.”

  3. Perfectly chosen words and style Miriam. To say more often dilutes the essence of a poem especially as in this case when one is given the gift of a ‘Peak experience’ such as this. The moment of utter jot that struck you when you were looking at the flowers is a transcendence, difficult to transpose into words. Yet that’s exactly what you’ve done, allowing us to experience the same. By recalling this moment in future years you will be able to feel again that moment.
    Thank you.

  4. I am touched to tears Nigel, by your beautiful and deeply perceived comment.
    You are right, I didn’t understand myself why I used this brief format but
    again … you are right. It was a moment of utter joy and I wanted to share.
    Snapped the photo with my phone, uploaded and wrote three lines.
    And sent it. Thinking, a bit of madness might be good. 😊 .
    If you in turn experienced the same the simple post was right. Thank you.

  5. March is a tough month in New England, but one of the things that brings me much joy is how the stores/flower shops suddenly sell bunches upon bunches of daffodils – $5 for a dozen! I FILL my house with them to keep my spirits up before real spring begins. What a gorgeous photo you share here – and the title is perfect. xo

  6. Thank you Pam for your happy and beautiful comment. I do think you are at
    least a month later than us with spring. Here some Daffodils are coming out in the garden.
    Beginning of February we have the same delight as you, the stores sells bundles of Daffodils that look like green stalks but burst out at home.
    You enjoy the start of spring in your home.

    • Thank you so much B, I feel joy that your soul felt lifted. Mine did at that
      moment. We have had a long grey winter but now spring has come to the
      South of England.
      You will enjoy it the more when spring bursts out so far North. πŸ€— .

  7. This is so lovely. Daffodils are my favorite flower and these are simply perfect, Miriam. Liquid gold. So true.
    Something else. You left a comment on my post Bau: Benefits of Reading to a Dog. I had clicked on approve and then like but the like button is right next to the delete button and so, well, your comment got deleted before I was able to cancel the delete. Anyway, I don’t know how to retrieve your comment and so, if you have time I’d appreciate if you rewrote it on my post. So sorry about that. Hugs.

  8. Carol, a warm thank you for the comment. I believe the positive and sunny
    colour of Daffodils makes them so loved in early spring. Harbingers of spring and summer.
    So you deleted me …πŸ€—, I know what you mean with the buttons so close together. I can’t retrieve it either but will tomorrow write some words, they are never the same but the spirit is.
