A Mile of Daffs

A haibun for Jacqui’s Echoes of my Neighbourhood over on A Cooking Pot and Twisted Tales

On Sunday 3rd April, locals in our area will take part in Daffodil Day, when the daffodils, planted some years ago along a mile-long lane next to Honing Church, are expected to be in full blossom. You can walk or take one of the vintage tractors that drive up and down the route, enjoy refreshments in the church and join in the tombola. But the best way to take in the beauty of the mile of daffs is when there is no one else around – just birds singing and the breeze whistling.

 

Flanked by flamboyant

Fanfares of yellow flowers

Trumpeting in spring

Walking the daffodil mile

Greeting the day with a smile
