Lonely as a Cloud



"I wandered 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..."

Lovely photograph - very evocative. Our daffodils are not out yet.
Did you know that when Wordworth was planning his "Daffodils" he first had the line as
I wandered like a lonely cloud.
Doesn't sound half as beautiful, does it?

Another beautiful photo...My husband and I have an ongoing "debate"...jonquil vs. buttercup...I tell him he has to say buttercup as long as he is among us Southerners...

My husband has been bringing home daffodils. The lack of sun must be affecting him too.

Gorgeous color. Love both the detail and the softness. On this dreary grey day - the bright yellow is a welcome surprise!

Weaver,
Our daffodils are not out yet either. I got these at the supermarket. :)

Beautiful to look into that delicate interior, heavenly to smell the scent. It's coming closer, I can feel it - spring!
