It's hard to get sick of daffodils. Just when you think they might outlast their welcome, they are gone.

Gorgeous!!! I especially love the sweet tulips contrasted with the dormant mounds of lavender. What a lovely place, that's near Stanford U?

Beautiful photos of spring at Filoli! Those camellias and the magnolia WOW! Do tulips and daffodils need to be artifically chilled to bloom in the bay area?

Try Wordsworth if you're sick of daffodils.
...They flash upon that inward eye which is the bliss of solitude. And then my heart with pleasure fills...

I'm not at all sick of daffodils. I am so looking forward to seeing this garden at last at the Garden Bloggers Fling in June. Will you be there, Chuck? I'd love to meet you in person after all these years of following your blog. http://gardenbloggersfling.blogspot.com/
