Daffodils in Nowton Park

    Newer Older

    Nowton Park has always been a special place for me, more so in spring when the avenue is awash with daffodils.. This impressive display along the Lime Avenue in spring replies on a planting of over 100,000 daffodils using a mix of King Alfred and Magnificent.

      Lovely field of yellow. It's snowing outside now - seems that winter hasn't quite finished with us yet.

      Thanks Teresa! It has been reasonably warm over the past week but it's turning cold tonight with a chance of snow tomorrow. Will be interesting to revisit next weekend to see how the coming cold spell has affected them.

      Thanks robep, had about 10 minutes of sleet and hour after taking this picture, and now the clouds are starting to look quite ominous...
