Daffodil growing in my garden.........................................................................


Every Sunday morning for the past seven weeks I have taken a little video clip of this daffodil growing in my garden. It started to appear so early this year confused by the mild weather. It usually flowers in late March.


It flowered on Wednesday while I was at work... it was the 29th of February.
I took my final clip at 6.50am the following morning before leaving for work.

   

           It is only a short clip and put together just for fun... I am also playing around with the editing....
                                            ...adding titles and credits (Windows Live Video Maker).

Daffodils always seem to brighten the gloom of winter days. Nice video, the fade to the next photo works well for this type of series. Have a great weekend! :)

I can't wait for the daffs to show on Avenue de Paris. If you have nothing better to do, you could click on the daffodil label on VDP... I'm not sure they'll have made it this year. Some were already starting to open yellow in January and then we had - 11° at night...

I've just bought a bunch today, the first this year! :-)
Love you way you've shown the 'evolution'. Are those snowdrops in the foreground?

Adoro flores mas não conheço narcisos... não sei se aqui tem outro nome.
Bom fim de semana!
Beijinhos.

Result, the nation flower of Wales is finally invading Andres garden. Go on my son...lol
Excellent photos though, and i liked that video, puts a good spin on a 'normal' time lapse.

Good little video Andrew; and a lovely subject. So cheery.

You are so clever with your video. Your days look quite hearty where mine look confused to be blooming in March and not in spring. I, too, have been cutting them expecting another storm o come and freeze them out. Lovely captures. Gorgeous yellows. genie

The Daffs are about come out in my part of Engand, and the video, well, added a few things things Andrew.

Jealous. Seriously jealous. No daffodils in Florida. (Beautiful job with the pictures and video!) I'm just kidding about being jealous...sob!

I love the video.... we won't have daffodils here for several more weeks. And my patch runs a full week longer than most places around here. I love daffodils.... maybe I'll go get some store-boughten ones to go with the new paint job in the dining room...

Also just read the tide stories. When we were in Maine at Acadia National Park, we lived with the tides. My Mom was a Florida native and she also just 'knew' the tides. Great pics and story.

This is SUCH a sight for sore eyes! I remember going to England in February and being so thrilled to get a 2-month jump on spring. Enjoy your daffies!

Nancy Claeys said...
