Chasing Daffodils

With Spring approaching, the first Daffodils in the garden are always a joy, even though the fields are glowing bright yellow in vivid flashes across West Penwith but these are "our" Daffodils, secreted in the ground each year with the hope of spring and all of the wishes that go with them for the following year and then suddenly they are here. Finding the new clumps I have added,  I remember putting the bulbs to my basket with my summer/autumn shopping, digging the hard summer ground to plant them in anticipation of this moment when they emerge one more in ever increasing numbers, a sort of hope bank for the season.
