First Daffodils in Nice, France

Daffodil, originally uploaded by fraise.

Photographer Anna Stevenson writes about her March 7, 2009 image: The photo was taken at my home in Nice, France. I don’t know what type of daffodils they are. They were planted as bulbs back in October; I got them at a gardening store in Vieux Nice where they were being sold as mixed daffodil bulbs. (Usually they identify their bulbs, but they got a shipment of mixed random ones.)

Daffodils in Ivry-sur-Seine, France

The photographer el is nice tells us about photographing these cheery daffodils: I took it on January 22, I bought the daffodils in a supermarket : a lot of them were here, talking about spring… Then, I put them on my kitchen window and I like to look at them, behind the glass, among the rain drops…I live very close to Paris : at Ivry-sur-Seine, the weather is not very fine at the moment, rather cold and today, it’s a big strike day, everywhere in France !

Spring is coming… in Correze, France

Spring is coming …….., originally uploaded by Arnac19.

We have daffodils coming up in France! The photographer Arnac19 tells us: They are currently poking through the edge of my rockery bed next to our driveway in Arnac-Pompadour, Correze, France. The garden is still a work in progress, but I was desperate for a bit of cheery spring colour. I planted them in November 2007 and they had their first flowering last spring, but not until March time. They are very early this year, but still have a long way to go until flowering.

I’m sorry I can’t tell you what their name is – I just brought a bag of mixed from our local Supermarket when they were on promo, dug a hole, dropped the lot in, and kept my fingers crossed for a colourful display. I was not disappointed.
