Our neighbor is an artist, and has cultivated a beautiful woodland garden over many years.
He and his wife share our love of daffodils. They have planted thousands of daffodils, of many different varieties, while caring for this bit of land.
We are so fortunate to have these kind friends as our neighbors.
We especially love their garden in springtime, when the hillside is covered with daffodils.
This past autumn, our neighbors spent weeks digging up older clumps of bulbs, dividing them, and replanting to rejuvenate the bulbs. I can’t remember when I’ve ever seen so many beautiful daffodils blooming all at once.
We have also planted more daffodils each autumn since we came to this garden. We add some bulbs and shrubs each year, but we still look across to our neighbors’ yard for the most splendid show of spring flowers.
All of these flowers grow across the way, in our neighbors’ garden.

Tick Season Is Here- Daffodil photos
Naturalized daffodils are such a cheerful sight for winter-weary eyes!
Yes 😉 One of the greatest joys of the year for us!
Daffodils are such a favorite, aren’t they? I love that the deer leave them alone and there is hope of a nice bloom each spring. I have large clumps of daffodils growing throughout my woods. I often wonder who first planted them. Your neighbor’s garden is beautiful.
And Barbara, another reason to love daffodils is that one can grow them under trees 😉 One of the few flowers which does well; in a forest. Our neighbor’s garden is more heavily wooded than ours, since recent storms, and their daffodils don’t mind the summer shade, so long as they can enjoy the springtime sun. So happy to know you have large clumps of these, too. An heirloom plant, left by one generation for the many who ill follow 😉 Best wishes, WG
Thanks for the follow. You have a lovely blog. I look forward to reading more.
As I’m looking forward to yours! Best wishes, WG
