Farndale Daffodils.

The wild daffodils just starting to flower. River Dove, Farndale

Another Voluntary Ranger day, this time at Farndale. The daffodils are just starting to come out - another week or two (Easter weekend I reckon !!) and they will be at their best. But they were still well worth a stroll along the Daffodil Walk from Low Mill to Church Houses.

The daffodils are all the wild variety that pre date all the domestic daffs in our gardens. They are quite a bit smaller and don't flower until about a month later than domestic daffodils. Wonderful how they have colonised this remote dale on the North York Moors.

Even though it was a Monday in March, the sun was out and there were quite a few walkers about.
