Daffodil, Goodbye and Thank You!


Baldock DaffodilIt’s Bank Holiday time again! Picnic rugs are being dusted down, barbecues fetched from the far reaches of the garage and Ice-cream van jingles are being heard again after a long winter. I always am sorry to see the demise of the daffodil, it has lightened our lives during that no-mans land of winter/spring and deserves more recognition. Alas it is soon forgotten by events until it comes to our rescue again next year…

The daffodils are nearly done
A sign of spring receding
It’s time to mow the lawns each week,
the borders, they need weeding.

But what is this to cloud the mind?
First Bank Holiday Monday!
We’ll have to take the kids somewhere,
Not gardening but a funday!

Oh dear they say the traffic’s bad,
Miles and miles of queues,
The weather may be bad as well,
Not good for lambs and ewes!

I hope you enjoy your weekend,
May your outside cooking not fail,
And maybe I’ll be seeing you,
At our Saturday car boot sale!
