Friday Flowers

For Friday Flowers, how about an archive shot; but something to look forward to nonetheless.

To quote from one of Wordsworth's great poems, from 1804

a host of golden daffodils, 
beside the lake, beneath the treees,
fluttering and dancing in the breeze

Enjoy your day, whatever you are doing.


Christmas is coming up, and although I'm not one to get excited by it all these days, here's a card anyway, from Jim and myself, to wish everyone a Merry Christmas.
