I posted an image yesterday for Wordless Wednesday, which got me thinking of Wordsworth’s Daffodils, and the lines
“Beside the lake, beneath the trees,
Fluttering and dancing in the breeze”
put me in mind of this image taken on a breezy day nearly 10 years ago:
oh this is wonderful and such a coincidence because I posted Wordsworth on Monday (it was a recycle of a 2019 post) and sue – your post actually fits his words better then my home daffodils. I like my photos but your photo depicts more of the wildness and countryside daffodils that seemed to make his heart sing!
Pleased you like my photo!
here is the poem (and your layered landscape really fits so well)
Yes, I took two lines from the first stanza, you have the final stanza
A host of golden daffodils! (thanks for the poem – I didn’t know it)
Glad you enjoyed this post!
One of my favourite poems. Lovely spring scene, Sue. 😍
Thank you, Sylvia!
These dancing daffodils and the mention of Wordsworth make my heart sing! Happy spring to you!
Yippee! And I happy Spring to you and Bert, Rusha!
Spring in a single shot. Lovely.
Thought you might like this one, Margaret!
Gorgeous shot, hoping some daffodils might still be out when we get back
When are you due back, Becky?
A week tomorrow
I was watching some daffodils dancing when walking Ollie today. The sun was out, the sky blue, but the breeze was still cold.
Best wishes, Pete.
Well, sunshine and blue sky is a huge plus!
That’s a beautiful shot, Sue. The tree trunks and distant water works so well with the yellows.
Thanks! I was pleased with this one, Debbie
Beautiful photo Sue 😀
Wordsworth and daffodils – spring and serenity.
Makes my heart sing, that’s for sure.
Beautiful! I love daffodils.
Pleased you like this, Anabel!
It’s interesting how sharp the daffodils seem in comparison to the plants just the other side of the river. When I was callow and a teacher presented that poem I scoffed. Thank God I’m older now.
I saw a similar scene yesterday in St James’ Park and went over to photograph it, only to find that the daffodils were already well past their best! Spring is advancing rapidly 🙂
Oh dear! And it does seem Spring is way too early
I don’t mind it being early (I get sick of winter by late January!) but I wish it would hang around longer 🙂
Well, that’s what I really meant!
