Tom’s Daffodil Diaries


I love spring. It’s yellow. Yellow is my favourite colour. It’s a happy colour. And it smells nice too. Tom’s garden is starting to burst into yellow life with daffodil popping up everywhere with their cheerful little faces. Dancing in the breeze, singing in the sunshine and laughing in the rain. We have native daffodils (I’ll call them Jane Daffodils)…
