A few weeks ago we took some visiting family for a drive around the area where we live. We stopped off at Baxters Highland Village, where they make all sorts of delicious things from soups to preserves. It's a really beautiful area. The whole factory and shopping complex is surrounded by river (Spey), parkland and countryside.
Here's the view of the Spey from their visitors parking area.
...and this is where I was standing taking that photo,
on steps going up the hill between grassy banks overflowing daffodils.
Golden yellow ones...
...and white ones.
I never knew there were so many different types of daffodils!
These below were really weird - shaped like little yellow trumpets.
And the difference in sizes amazes me too. These below were really big...
...but this one was so tiny I nearly missed it hidden in a bed of tulips.
I held the stem so you can see my hand size in comparison.
I was in a daffodil daze! ;-)
I took the last photo of daffodils a week later, in the town of Forres.
It's the one I have used for my April Banner.
I just love the combination of colours in this flower tub.
