Oh No! The Daffoldils are out!

Yesterday I picked the first daffodils from the White Moss House garden. This is too early! They'll all be over by Easter at this rate!
Today is leap year day, and it's mild and sunny. I'm going outside with the secateurs to prune the jasmine. I don't know if it's the "right time", but it's something I just need to do.

If you don't know the story behind the world's most famous poem, "Daffodils" by our man William Wordsworth, you'll find the story of William Wordsworth's Daffodils here.

The little "Wordsworth Daffodils" just along the road at Dora's Field 

Dora's field, Rydal, is next to Rydal Mount, where Wordsworth lived his later years. He planned to build a house for Dora, his daughter. This was never built, and the field is now a lovely woodland slope, full of daffodils in March.
