Cornish Beauties


Visiting St Ives on Saturday I wasn’t expecting to see daffodils for sale on the harbour-side. Buckets full of golden beauties and these double white spicy scented Narcissus Acropolis variety. The two bunches I came away with both have deep orange-red centres and are absolutely beautiful. This collage is for my friend who enjoys photographing flowers in decay – Sue Judd.

  1. I miss all these lovely spring flowers, sadly I cannot grow them here. But then I guess I can grow lots of other tropical things that you can’t.

  2. They certainly are Jude ! My garden varieties are pretty much over and bluebells have taken centre stage along with spreading grape hyacinths . Must have been gorgeous down by the harbour with those buckets of Cornish daffs vying for attention – and buying thereof !
    Cornwall has enjoyed some beautifully warm Spring sunshine just recently , perfect for flinging open those windows – or perhaps not ….

    • …well, windows are flung, but then the overpowering smell of the cattle next door invades so they get shut again. I’m sure we’ll get used to it, but I’m beginning to think I smell of manure myself now! The daffodils certainly help 😀
