Taken a couple of days ago not far from where I live.
V1 was taken whilst lying down on my plastic sheet; V2 is included to show the extent(not all) of the display.
I always look forward to this time of year when these beautiful daffodils flower for all to enjoy.
It's the first time I've stopped to take pictures at this location.
I was amazed at the wide variety of these gorgeous blooms which were planted by the Dudley MBCl several years ago.
Many appreciative thanks to all who viewed, voted and commented on my 'Slate Pots at Threave House Gardens' upload!Smile
My last upload for a week or so - we've got a wedding to go to at Storrington in Sussex followed by a day or two at Arundel.
Have a good day,
Richard

It's hard to believe that such beauty can thrive against the urban scrawl.

Two beautiful images, image one being the winner, beautifully composed, captured, processed and presented Richard.

V1 seems to be 'trumpeting' the fact Spring has arrived - what a beautiful macro, too, Richard, love the detail, colour and especially the background tones. Good job no one reported a 'body' to the Ambulance service, I can just imagine you lying there on your plastic sheet, all the cars passing...!
V2 is a wonderful image, the 'waves' of Daffodils being made from white and yellow, receeding into the distance.
Very well accomplished, indeed, Richard.

As soon as I saw your title I immediately thought of this location. Drove past it last week and got a cracked windscreen just after Sad

V1 is a beautiful solo specimen and v2 is a welcoming sight to see this colourful display so close to such a busy road. It must brighten up the day for the many motorists who use it regularly
