Spring has sprung, Green Park, London – March 2009

Can there be anything that lifts the spirits as much as the sight of a carpet of daffodils with their impossibly hellow heads nodding gently in the breez after a long, chilly, boiler-breaking winter in London??

Nope, didn't think so.

I work right by a cometary and one of the things I love to do more than anything this time of year is just wander through and admire all the daffodils that have popped up in bunches around the tombstones. It’s so oddly relaxing!

Ah, I can feel your relief as well. The only thing taking the edge off all this springiness was my heating bill this week. After having it on 24 hours a day to accommodate new baby and fight the frost, it was UGLY. Still, yay spring. :)

Stunning daffodil. Wish they were blooming like that in New York, but spring hasn’t really arrived here yet. Your collection of photos is fantastic. Such a variety of subjects, we’re all wondering what will appear next. I’m also wondering what type of camera you use. Thanks for sharing these photos.

I love the sight of daffodils. After each miserable UK winter my mood is immediately cheered up by the sight of these beautiful flowers.
