We have lived in Massachusetts for 18 years and have never been to Lexington, Massachusetts. I decided to take my kids to experience it for Patriot’s Day weekend 2013. While there I snapped this photo of the Minute Man Statue on the Lexington Battle Green. After that we saw a number of Minute Men re-enactors perform on the Green.

Editor’s note: Here is a wikipedia entry on the Minute Men. With half of the readers of our First Daffodils page living in the UK, it’s very nice to be sharing daffodils and friendship, and not war as we did 300 years ago.

Her flickr comment adds more: Went with Round the World Women to the Mount Holyoke College greenhouses. Inside our favorite one, it was like Easter. Amazing.

Photographer my_southborough tells us about this Massachusetts meadow: The photo was taken on April 18 at Tower Hill Botanic Garden (http://www.towerhillbg.org/) in the town of Boylston – a lovely spot in Central Massachusetts. I don’t know what kind of daffodils they are.

I have a few other daffodil shots: www.flickr.com/photos/mysouthborough/tags/daffodil/. All except the ones by the stone wall were taken at Tower Hill on 4/18. The ones by the stone wall were taken in Southborough, MA.

We LOVE this photo showing nature’s determination – what a powerful thrust to go through the leaf instead of pushing it aside – amazing!

Photographer LizzieBelle tells us about this March 11, 2009 image: The photo was taken in a public garden called Grandmothers’ Garden, in Westfield Massachusetts.

Here are links to LizzieBelle’s blogs, Musings from the Otherworld (photoblog) and Not The Daily Planet, chronicling her explorations of Western Massachusetts and the Interwebs.

Unfortunately I can’t add anything more about the daffodils themselves, but the website may have some info. You should also check out my friend’s stream from the same show of a few good daff shots:
