The Lens-Artist photo challenge this week is about being at home – since so many people these days are forced to spend a lot more time at home than usual. For me, home has always meant more than just the house, it’s been the garden as well. At this time of year, the garden is mainly about daffodils – daffs – Narcissus – whatever you choose to call them. They’re mainly yellow, and, by planting different varieties that have a few weeks variation in blooming time, I generally have about six weeks of flowers starting early to mid April, depending on the weather.
Because I’ve been spending a lot more time at home this year than usual, I’ve been able to witness for the first time the daily growth in the garden, morning noon and night. And I’ve really been enjoying the daffs!
I have a LOT of daffodils around my home – I love their cheeriness after a long, cold winter. I hope to plant another hundred or so in October.
