Walking through the Daffodils

The daffodils have nearly finished but tulips are starting to replace them. I am really looking forward to the fields of bluebells, having never seen a field of bluebells before.

Lovely picture! It reminds me of the Wordsworth poem:

Daffodils

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;
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 stretched 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 leaves in glee;
A poet could not be but 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.

Magnificent! This image truly shows how London, despite the millions of people living there, has "secret" places like in a fairytale. The depth of it seems like endless woods.

Daffodils, tulips & Oh! the smell of spring.
Wonder where you are going to find a field of bluebells in London?

Good shot, as usual, Mo. Is the lady confessing her love secrets to the big tree? Or is she waiting for her lover in such a romantic park? Maybe she's only walking her dog and waiting for its return . By the way, where in London did you take this photo?

Julie said...

The lone walker adds so much to your image, Mo.

Beautiful picture!

Like others, I was wondering where in London was this taken? In one of the many, lovely parks?

Ivy said...

For those who asked, this is St James Park. Right by Buckingham Palace.

Splendid photo. If you get to Texas at certain times of years, you will see many fields of bluebells...

What a lovely place to walk amid the daffodils and trees.

Hi Mo
I am enjoying your photos of London. I used to live there so its good to see some familiar sights through fresh eyes.

BTW you won't find a field of bluebells they generally grow in the woods, sometimes you see them in gardens but never fields.

They are a glorious sight, with and beautiful scent.

Maybe you will find some up on Hampstead Heath
