A View of my Daffodil Border

When I moved to my farm in Bedford, one dream I had was to grow a major continuous swath of daffodils.  With some planning and quite a bit of planting, that dream came true and every spring, I am so very happy.  This bed begins at the southwest corner of the property and runs north along the length of Maple Avenue.  There are approximately forty different varieties of daffodils planted here and when they are in full bloom, It is really quite breathtaking.  The other day, I decided to pick one of each kind to share with you.  Unfortunately, a few of the early bloomers have already passed.  Please enjoy these photos!
