We feel a little sorry for the daffodil. It’s such a hardy plant that it has become ubiquitous among our local parks and town centres, in the countryside, the seas of yellow are quite as dramatic as a field of rapeseed nor are they as iconic to the British landscape as a field of buttercups would be.
However, there are some stunning displays of daffodils across the county, Castle Howard and Clifford Tower to name a few.
After the fleeting appearances of snowdrops and bluebells we tend to take the daffodil for granted, but as these images show, they are every bit as beautiful.
