We love this Vancouver photo. It is artistically a home run, combining daffodils and an urban landscape into an image as pleasing as daffodil meadows and daffodil hills. Image taken on April 17, 2008, in George Wainborn Park.

We always say this is likely our last snowy daffodils photo of the season. This wintry and lovely image was taken in Burnaby Mountain Park, BC, on April 19, 2008.
We don’t tend to post “just daffodils” here, because there are so many beautiful photos published of “just daffodils”. We prefer a landscape and other interesting things going on in the photograph. Sometimes we make an exception when a photograph is too breathtaking to leave out. Steve-h took this beauty on April 13, 2008, in Bushy Park, Dublin, Ireland.

We chanced upon two treasures just now:
1. A gifted writer, artist, and garden blogger called The Occasional Gardener, full of lush energy and imagery, a treasure trove of art and imagination woven into our modern experience. This is a blog we’ll want to return to again and again. In fact, we’re going to grab the RSS feed to bring the blog onto our desktop.
2. A video of the daffodils taken recently at The New York Botanical Garden.
A big thanks to The Occasional Gardener for his blog and posting the video of the daffodils.
University of Michigan’s Nichols Arboretum has daffodils coming up in the Main Valley, and when all are in bloom, the official count will be a half-mile long line of 20,000.
Here’s another image by baklein62 from the same series.
These images were taken on April 25, 2008.
You can learn more about this dynamic art project at the Imagine/Align website. Be sure to watch the video showing the planting of this daffodils line at the start of the project.
