I have tried to capture a single bloom,and in the second photo did some Photoshop alterations.
In 2002, Mayumi lived with us for the whole year, and I tried to explain to her the poem “ I wandered lonely as a cloud” when our garden was full of these daffodil blooms.Mayumi always marvelled at the stars, they seemed to her to be so much brighter than when seen from her home in Japan. This time last year we welcomed her back for a short stay, and it snowed.This was taken at Wellington Airport, after we had wiped away the tears of happiness. August 2011.
Quotation of the day, from William Wordsworth,
“ And then my heart with pleasure fills,
And dances with the daffodils”
