About 10 years ago this spring, while taking the roundabout way home from work, I came across this daffodil stand. This time of year the stand is almost always full and it is operated completely on the honor system. In fact, I’ve never actually seen a living soul around when I’ve stopped.
There must be someone who cuts and bundles the flowers, though. The stand sits beside a lovely old house with a huge field of nothing but daffodils. There are all yellow ones, yellow and white ones, yellow and orange ones, orange and white ones . . . hundreds and hundreds of daffodils.
A bouquet is $3 and on Tuesday I stopped and bought myself a bunch. It’s an inexpensive way to brighten my day.
And my windowsill.
How sunny! I love the idea of a field full of daffodils.
A field of daffodils is a wonderful sight to behold. Nice bunch you have there.
Love the idea of a field of daffodils and cut blooms ready to go! I’d have daffodils all over the house if the stand was near by. What a wonderful thing! I need some color, maybe the market will have daffies for sale today!
Where is the stand? I might stop by. They are beautiful and will brighten up any room!
Daffodils. One of the happiest signs of spring.
I can see daffodils from my office window … love them! Not much else can brighten a spring day like a bunch of daffodils 🙂
Daffodils were blooming ALL OVER the UK — so nice, since we’re barely into the snowdrop and crocus phase here.
LOVE the daffodils! In early March, I start buying the small bunches that Market Basket sells. Sometimes they open up beautifully, sometimes not so much. For a number of years, we lived in southeastern VA, and Gloucester county VA has a Daffodil Festival every year about the 3rd week in March (yes, spring comes that early in VA!) Talk about fields of daffodils. Just beautiful!
So lovely. That field must be an amazing sight.
Isn’t it wonderful that there are still places in the world where the honor system is alive an well? We have a similar arrangement with fresh eggs from a farm near my home.
I would love to know where the field of daffodiils are.
I live just a couple of towns away.
Old house & daffodils – just perfect..
Nothing brightens a gray day like daffodils! (Unless it’s a trusting soul and people who do the right thing!)
So pretty. I got a bunch from a store nearby recently and they died really fast instead of opening. I was so bummed out.
Oh, the daffodils are beautiful! I’m in the suburbs north of Chicago and mine are just starting to open up so I bought some at the grocery today! Wouldn’t you love to see the field where all of those on the stand are grown! I love spring!
I used to go to a farm stand that was on the honor system. The flower idea is really nice…wonder if I could fill my back yard with daffodils… 🙂
That is so cool! I wouldn’t be able to resist getting some.
They are so pretty! I love them.
I love daffodils! Nothing says spring like a cheery bunch of daffodils! Hop on over to my nantucketdream1.blogspot.com blog for a peek at mine too!
