Thanks for taking me for a walk, I needed the exercise. The daffs are just glorious, maybe one day my 3 will multiply, maybe!!!
Carole yoy really have inspired me to buy a lot of bulbs next season, they will have to be jonquils though as there is enough yellow here with the wild gorse!
have an awesome weekend
hugs, Miche'le

Thank you for a lovely walk among the daffy's this afternoon. What a beautiful sight they are. Loved the sound of the gumboots sloshing.
Thought I saw my Dh's work car go by, can't be because he works in Aussie. Wish I was there. Cheers Jenni

Oh, you made me so so homesick! I'm an almost official Kiwi (lived there for 35 years) who is now residing in France. Though beautiful, my heart is still in New Zealand. PS LOVED hearing your accent. Whaaaaa.

Oh Carole!
Good on you cos that's the only walk for me today!
It rained incessantly here all day.

Your daffs are superb, and I can see you're really enjoying them!
I had a lovely long walk in Cornwall Park yesterday - tween the showers!
I took some daff photos too and animals so I'll be posting over the weekend. Come and take a gander!
Can't compete with your video tho, you're much more techno than me! LOL

Carole, the daffodils are fabulous! I loved your long shadow - it got touched by the hot wires - did you feel anything???

I will be down your way early next week for a funeral, so we just might pass your gateway.

Bunty said...

What a huge place you have Carole! Must take some looking after. It must have taken you ages planting the bulbs and they are so beautiful, it is worth it.

Thanks for sharing your lovely Spring afternoon. It's late Summer here and quite wet this week so Spring seems a million miles away!

Have a great weekend.

Beautiful daffodils! That must have been some planting project!!

dosfishes said...

Daffodills are spectacular. Thanks for sharing the flowers and the sheep. Please give us another walk when the lambs come....would so enjoy it. Deer won't eat the daff's so I shall be planting more to get your wonderful effect. xox Corrine

Well that was fun spending a sunny Friday afternoon with you... but wait it's only Friday MORNING here in Virginia! and it's certainly not spring heehee!
I have a coupleo f questions, do you deadhead all of those gorgeous bulbs when they're finished blooming?
And what are the white things blooming in the grass ... I imagined clover or sweet little daisies that I remember growing in Germany when I was a girl

That was really fun ... long shadow woman!
Have a lovely weekend!

That was so much fun, thank for the lovely walk. It is so strange to think you are in the midst of Spring and we are just going into Fall. I would love to see your lambs when they are born.
Have a great weekend1

Dotti said...

So, who gets to mow all that grass growing in the driveway???

You have planted an awesome amount of bulbs! The work sure paid off beautifully!

Linda said...

Oh what fun that was! You should do this more often! Especially when the lambs are born! Loved seeing everything....especially your mailbox. We should all show our mailboxes!

Nathalie Thompson said...

What a lush display! I enjoyed the walk-- you have along driveway!

I know it's not the right country, but I almost expected to see Shawn the Sheep. heehee

lindaschiffer said...

What a nice walk! Thanks so much for sharing - it's delightful to take advantage of the Net to literally see the other side of the Earth from me. ;)

That driveway looks like a daffodil gallery! Do you grow peonies in the summer??? :)

Love it!

:) Linda

Jenxo said...

Thank you Carole, i really enjoyed that walk, it looks very similar countryside to here too... so nice to hear your voice too...the daffs are just beautiful. It must have taken you ages to plant that long drive....
Have a great weekend...jenxo and heres to some sunshine ....

Pallas said...

Thanks for the walk down your drive. I must say, you are a brave soul for walking so close to a live fence. I keep forgetting that you are just going into Spring. Beautiful property and the flowers are lovely. Ooh, I’m hoping you take another video after the little lambs are born and they are in the field.

Hi Carole
My husband and I enjoyed the walk down your lovely driveway this morning. It gets us back into the mood for our holiday coming up next week to New Plymouth to see my MIL.
The weather looks nice & your daffs & jonquils are gorgeous- I loved their scent. Thanks Carol
Norma

Oh what fun!! Thank you for the tour - it almost feels like being there in person. The flowers are so lovely and really make we wish we were just going into spring here instead of into fall and then the dreaded winter (yuck).

Annette said...

Hiya Carole, I'm a bit slow only went for you Friday walk this morning, Sunday here is ozland.. Loved the flower and sheep show, and hearing your accent, gorgeous. Would love to see the lambs when they arrive.
hugs Annette

Maggie R said...

Hi Carole,,
Your flowers are awesome. I can only imagine how fragrant the air is...
Quite the walk to the mailbox... Me~~ I just open the front door and my mailbox is right there!!! No challenge at all.
We are going into fall right now and the weather is still 30 degrees celcius.. Hope it last since winter and all the snow is not my favourite time of year!!! Thanks so much for sharing. I will be on the lookout for the new babies your lot will have soon..
xoxo
((((hugs))))

Be still my aching heart! blimey mate clips like that should come with a health warning. Now that I've wiped away a tear or two I'm ready to see the cake that goes with the coffee, surely you're planning to show us that next, a nice slice of marble or an Anzac bickie out to do the trick...
