A macro of the Narcissus variety ‘Ice Follies" taken at the Philadelphia International Flower Show. Gardeners, did you know that deer and rabbits won’t eat daffodils? They are poisonous.

Eye-filling paintings and photos excite me. Mine are inspired by the interplay of color, especially when it creates a cheerful and thoughtful impression. I am a photographer/writer/artist and love both nature and tech stuff. I also publish garden books — see my website. Thanks for looking at my work.

    LOL! I am bad about commenting before I read captions :) I am happy the deer do not eat the daffodils, they are about the only things that survive the deer in my yard!!!!! :)xx

  • Yes, those poisonous flowers are the only ones I get, sometimes, thanks to the many critters out there. But one kind of plant, Monkshood, is too poisonous even for my garden.
