Friday Flowers. Daffodil Daydreams at Filoli Gardens

Happy Friday!

How was your week? Ready for a relaxing weekend? For us this week our temperatures have been unseasonably warm – we are talking temperatures in the 70s and even low 80s!! I think we even broke a few records 🤔.  Our spring bulbs are thinking its spring already and have started blooming all over town.  In fact, at Filoli Gardens in Woodside, California their annual Daffodil Daydreams show is in full bloom.  I knew if I wanted to see these gorgeous daffs I’d have to go right away, because with the warm weather we are having I was sure the blooms were going to dwindle soon.  And so began a rather quick and unexpected trip to Filoli Gardens this week. What a spectacular show these daffodils put on!

Daffodils in a myriad of styles shapes and colors were in bloom on this late February afternoon.  Let me not bore you with too many words and let the pictures speak a thousand words.

  1. Wow! Dolly !!! Golden Daffodils!!!! So refreshing to See these Lovely images specially at this time when One is getting Scary Vibes from the Onslaught of Corona Virus Epidemic in San Francisco and now a few case in Virgina too , The following Lines from William Wordsworth’s famous poem on Daffodils comes to mind … ” i wandered lonely as a Cloud that floats on high over Vales and Hills , when all at once i saw a crowd A host of dancing Daffodils . Along the Lake , beneath the trees, Ten thousand dancing in the breeze . ” Ty for the Images …

    1. Thank you Vianatha Mami for your kind words! Yes, even my friend Radhika was telling me my daffodil photos reminded her of Wordsworth’s poem 😀 Such a timeless poem. Thank you for sharing!

    1. Thank you! Yes even I called the camelia a “candycane” flower 😀 My friend and I were discussing how beautiful tightly packed daffodils looked in pots, we made a mental not to do that next planting season as well!
