Dancing Daffodils

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:


  1. 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!

  2. here is the poem (and your layered landscape really fits so well)

  3. A host of golden daffodils! (thanks for the poem – I didn’t know it)

  4. One of my favourite poems. Lovely spring scene, Sue. 😍

  5. These dancing daffodils and the mention of Wordsworth make my heart sing! Happy spring to you!

  6. Spring in a single shot. Lovely.

  7. Gorgeous shot, hoping some daffodils might still be out when we get back

  8. 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.

  9. That’s a beautiful shot, Sue. The tree trunks and distant water works so well with the yellows.

  10. Beautiful photo Sue 😀

  11. Wordsworth and daffodils – spring and serenity.

  12. Makes my heart sing, that’s for sure.

  13. 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.

  14. 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 🙂
