Dance With Daffodils On A Spring Breeze - Daffodil - NZ by 


New Zealanders are fortunate that daffodils can be grown successfully in almost all of the country. The only exception is the Far North where special steps need to be taken. Even there, though, daffodils can be grown. Ideally daffodils should be lifted every three to four years. After this period of time they tend to clump up through vegetative reproduction and flowering quantity is reduced. Many of the pastures and gardens are littered with the bright yellow blooms of daffodils. The poem By William Wordsworth so beautifully written..

Dance With Daffodils On A Spring Breeze


Tie A Yellow Ribbon Round The Old Oak Tree! – Daffodil

Natures Frills And Ruffles

“Daffodils” (1804)
I WANDER’D lonely as a cloud
That floats on high o’er vales and hills,
When all at once I saw a crowd,
A host, of golden daffodils;
Beside the lake, beneath the trees,
Fluttering and dancing in the breeze.
Continuous as the stars that shine
And twinkle on the Milky Way,
They stretch’d in never-ending line
Along the margin of a bay:
Ten thousand saw I at a glance,
Tossing their heads in sprightly dance.
The waves beside them danced; but they
Out-did the sparkling waves in glee:
A poet could not but be gay,
In such a jocund company:
I gazed — and gazed — but little thought
What wealth the show to me had brought:
For oft, when on my couch I lie
In vacant or in pensive mood,
They flash upon that inward eye
Which is the bliss of solitude;
And then my heart with pleasure fills,
And dances with the daffodils.
By William Wordsworth (1770-1850).

My fascination with birds began as a child and almost 50 years down the track my love for our feathered friends has not diminished. Once we moved to Tranquillity (our little country retreat) my passion for birds, all nature and wildlife became a digital reality through the lens of my camera.
