Thursday Throwback

Have you noticed that the Daffodils are flowering or soon to be flowering? On my way to work there are hundreds planted on the road side. I must take some pictures when the sun is shining on them, they will look glorious!

These images are from previous years from York, Castle Howard and RHS Harlow Carr Gardens.

“The word ‘March’ comes from the Roman ‘Martius’. This was originally the first month of the Roman calendar and was named after Mars, the god of war.  March was the beginning of our calendar year. We changed to the ‘New Style’ or ‘Gregorian calendar in 1752, and it is only since then when we the year began on 1st January.

“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.”

William Wordsworth
