Friday Photo–Daffodils


Copyright All rights reserved by LindyLouMac Photo Collection

Our first daffodils are in bloom. Can you spot the stone heart I posted on Beautiful World yesterday?


  1. They are beautiful!!! Thank you for your sweet comment, I'm sure that spring will bring serenity and joy to all of us!

  2. Lovely! Daffs are one of my favourite flowers and I always have a bunch of them on the windowsill at this time of year. They are so jolly and cheerful when the weather is dull.

  3. Beautiful photos Linda. I am jealous that your daffodils are already blooming - it's going to be a while before we see them here in Michigan! Have a wonderful weekend.

  4. Good Morning Sweetie...
    A beautiful share this morning. I love the yellow daffodils. Spring is coming isn't it? They are just exquisite.

    Your heart rock is precious. I hope you plucked that up and took it home? Put it in a special place. It was LOVE waiting for you to come along.

    Happy Valentines Day. Many hugs and much love, Sherry

  5. Ggggrrrr!!!! Extremely jealous of your beautiful Daffodils! You're so ahead in central Italy!

  6. I love Daffodils! Yellow is my favourite colour for flowers! Really beautiful photos!
    Have a great weekend!

  7. awww those are beautiful my friend♥

  8. Yep spotted the stone heart :) Our daffodils are only about 4 inches out of the ground we have some catching up to do! Diane

  9. I love daffodils, and I am so jealous that yours are out already!! Lovely photos. They really do gladden the heart, don't they. Is that the stone heart at the base of the stems in photo number 2? Hope you have a lovely weekend.

  10. Ohhh, these cheered me tremendously today, Linda! :-) It is dreadfully dark, cold and raining in Washington, and seeing those sunny, yellow daffs lit up my world. :-)

  11. Che bei narcisi, I sincerely envy your climate! Not yet blooming flowers here in northern Italy... :(

  12. Beautiful! Your daffodils are weeks ahead of ours. Here the leaves are just starting to poke through the soil.

  13. It will be some time before my daffodils begin to appear - so I will enjoy yours.
    Yes, I took a look at the heart stone - was that formed naturally? Love it.
    Enjoyed the ads with Clooney, and thanks for explaining what was going on.

  14. Our daffodils are starting to show a hint of yellow...but your s are way ahead. How lovely to see them, heralding spring. I LOVE daffodils.

    I've Liked you on Facebook.

    Sent you a button email - if I haven't explained myself well then keep asking until I work out how to say it!!


  15. Simply lovely - daffodils bring sunshine into any home!

  16. Pretty pretty! I see that stone at the base of the daffodils! :-)

  17. Diane@ I wonder how your daffodils in France are doing?
    Cathy@ When do they bloom in Australia, if you have them, I am curious?
    Rambling Tart@ Daffodils are so cheery I agree.
    Dona@ Hopefully the fog will lift and your flowers will bloom very soon.
    Cheshire Wife@ Once you get a little warmth it will not be long before they bloom.
    Shelia@ A welcome sign of Spring indoors and out.

  18. Lindy I have no daffodils in France, I have never been there to plant them! As soon as we make the final move to France the daffodils will be going in. There are a couple of tulips and masses of bluebells though.
    Lindy, thank you so much for your fantastic offer. Once we have made the move to France we can then look to maybe having a holiday. I would love to see Italy. I will ask Anne to show me. Of course if you want a trip to France we have a spare room. Thanks Diane

  19. Wow, they're out already? Ours are just coming through!

  20. Diane@ We have not planted any of the daffodils in this garden ourselves, just lucky to have purchased a house from someone who enjoyed her garden. It certainly would be great fun to meet up one day.

  21. Hi Linda .. Great to see flowers blooming :-) I think mine are coming through too..

    I am feeling a bit better now and yes a little bit of my mojo is coming back .. I was looking through my photos and saw the ones I posted.. I am going to look through photos pre blogging days too,, Like Barcelona and a few other places.

    Have a great week . xox

  22. Yippee, Spring is on its way...or at least that's what your lovely pictures would suggest. So nice.... xo

  23. How beautiful! How lucky you are that spring has arrived in your Italy - still winter in Iowa U.S.A. although we have been blessed with some lovely days...it'll be a month or more before the crocus and hellebores and snowdrops appear. Thanks for stopping by my blog.
    Blessings, Beth
