How about the best daffodils?

We have seen daffs round here since before Christmas last year, and there are still several pots in the garden just with buds on!

Nearly four months of these delightful bulbs must be a record, and to celebrate this event would be one way to get some decent pics!

I am honoured, Aunt Sally - even humbled! Thank you!

We bought some 'Rip Van Winkle' daffs today, and they are just exquisite, so that's why they were so high in our current thoughts!

I'll have to send off for a new film for the old box camera now...:0)

Humble - yes, Sunny, but it's true about the daffs, we found them in a lovely nursery near here, called, funnily enough, http://www.thewallednursery.com/index.php   

It was part of the kitchen gardenery to go with a lovely big house called Tongswood, which is now St Ronan's School!

We should really go there more often, but needs must when the devil drives...

I only took them today, Auntie, and a couple yesterday, so I need to get them resized and posted PDQ!

You know I'm not up to David Bailey standard, more like a fudge Brownie...

Oh, alright then, here's the first...

(Are we allowed more than one go?)

You might want to a) read the rules and b) post the entries in the competition thread  ;)
