Frilly Knickers

By LynneJoyce  
So titled because daffodil trumpets remind me so much of frilly knicker legs. V1 is not my favourite but the one that makes the most striking thumbnail and demonstrates the frilly knicker leg best. Here is my verse to go with the 15 images:-

Daffodilly, frilly knickers,
Worn on tourmaline-green stems,
Shiver in the mad March breezes,
Lively, lovely topaz gems.

Wild, high-kicking, thrusting clusters
Form a troupe on jade green banks,
Like saucy, sexy can-can girls,
Perform a tittilating dance.

Signs of hope and warmth and sunshine,
Precursors to long summer days,
Sparkling signatures of springtime,
Subjects of Words-worthy praise.

Frilly, daffodilly flowers,
Fluttering flags that herald Spring,
Citrine jewels in nature’s New Year,
Enchanting, joyful, promising.

Lynne Joyce, 20.04.1994.

A masterclass in frames, Lynne. The strong complementary colours work well. They're all very good but v3 stood out for me.

It's impossible to resist the urge to photograph these each and every Spring. It's such a positive signal that winter is over and summer is on its way. This set are special for the frames.

And the poem was worth keeping for twenty years too!

basking in the warmth
the colors, deep yellows, dark from intense sunshine
the warmth is creeping into my soul
I am breathing SPRING!!!

Thank you!

V4 for me today, please Lynne.
I like the image because the healthy, thrusting stems are against a tomb stone "In Memory"...
Reminding us that new life comes after old.
Your others are most enjoyable, for a variety of reasons, not least the excellent macro work.
And your presentation work is, as always, superb.
Glad to note that V8 will satisfy The Photo Mafia Wink
Even more pleased to make it '30' for you Grin

Superb capture of all variants.

Again an amazing set of presentations. My choice is V11 for composition. I would have picked V1 without that ghost. Well done Lynne.

Daffodils are so sunny and there are so many varieties, but usually accompanied by wind and rain, (as we have just had overnight).
Well timed to get the blue sky in this set, but V1 stands out to me.

What a wonderful set of golden daffodils, the light and colour is simply glorious in these and the poem is superb. I'm afraid mikbee will be most disappointed when he sees your title and there are no ladies undergarments in sight!Wink The ones with the clear blue skies in lingerie longest in the mind!Blush
