How does a spring garden grow?

I had breakfast yesterday at the local cafe served by my lovely friend Annie. She knows my order of ricotta and avocado toast with a side of bacon and a mug of skim flat white like it’s nobodies business. We had friends over for lunch yesterday so I asked if I could pop around to pick some daffodils for my table setting because if there’s one thing Annie has, it’s daffs. She is currently staying at a house with THE most beautiful garden so off I popped with my sidekicks to pick some daffs for a Sunday table.

I’m not sure there’s anything else I’d rather do on a Sunday morning then pick daffodils from a garden like this with my two girls. Thank you Annie x

    Oh my goodness Beth. Nothing better. Look at that daffodil heaven. We spent the weekend at my mum and dad’s EIEIO and they have a few dafs and early cheer. Not heaps but enough for half a dozen vases. Spent a happy half hour picking and arranging. The worst bit? My husband is allergic to frangrant flowers so they have to sit on the outside window sill so I can see but not smell or touch. Honestly – the sacrifices I make for that man. It’s almost grounds for divorce.

    Oh my gosh! They are like weeds! The most wonderful weeds I’ve ever seen. I used to think myself lucky with my five precious daffodil bulbs in my garden. That garden is heaven.

    • BabyMacBlogBeth says:

      I know! It’s my dream to have an entire silver birch GROVE completely underplanted with daffs and bluebells…one day!

      • Carolyn Manning says:

        I’ve been thinking on your Silver Birch GROVE, and I think you should add PEONIES to the mix. So long as you get a good long period of frost in the Winter you should bolt in with lots of gorgeousness in the Spring.

  10. That’s too gorgeous! I grew up in Canberra and we’d always meet our Sydney family here. Love it.

    We are order twins! Except I get a regular FW, extra hot. And my little sidekick eats all my bacon!
    Those daffodils are just gorgeous…we get such different signs of spring here in Brisbane.

  12. I love those daffodils! I have to make do and look at flowers on your blog as most flowers give me allergies!
