Daffy-down-dilly, which sounds a trifle bizarre, was apparently the original name for the daffodil, which belongs to the Amaryllis family, genus Narcissi, a trumpet-flowered English bulb.
Being the middle of August, with all these daffodils on display, shows that spring is just around the corner. Yippee! I’m not really a winter person, but it probably makes us appreciate the warmer weather more.
While taking these photos, Zorro deigned to pose with the daffodils to add his majestic black and white poise as a counter-balance to the delightful yellowness that is a daffodil.
