A host of....

...Golden daffodils - don't you just love them?

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.
William Wordsworth, 1770-1850
My daughter E gave these to me when I returned from hospital on Monday and they really did brighten my day. I just want to say a huge thankyou to all my dear blogging friends for all your kind thoughts and wishes for my recent eye surgery. All was well - I had my tear ducts syringed - and have a couple of black eyes to prove it!
Have a great weekend and be back soon


  1. Those daffs would definitely brighten any day! I'm glad to hear that your surgery went well although two blacks eyes probably isn't the best of looks! Sunglasses at the ready xxx
