Following an especially hard winter, Hawk Hill is now awash in daffodils. There are so many varieties of daffodils at Hawk Hill that on a good year, like this one, when conditions have been ideal, we get to enjoy them for the better part of a month!
This year I’m enjoying varieties I planted several years ago but had not yet seen bloom as well as varieties I didn’t even know I had, coming up in places I didn’t even know daffodils were planted! In the back of the property, around the ruins of a crumbled old homestead, an ocean of generations-old king-alfred style daffodils faithfully come up every spring and provide hundreds of blooms for me to cut and carry inside.
I’ve taken so many daffodil photos this year I wanted to take a few minutes and share the season:
