Good news - lots of daffodils this year in the Puyallup Valley. Amidst all the warehouses and homes which now cover the valley's fertile soil, there remains a small island between Sumner and Orting where daffodils and rhubarb continue to be grown. Even more daffodils this year than I have seen in recent years.
My usual luck is to visit just after most flowers have been picked. And indeed, the largest field of perhaps 10 acres had already been cut, but there remained a field near Knutson's farm buildings with flowers still in full bloom.
Even on an overcast day, daffodils shine with intense yellows that command our attention. There are always a few lonely cousins amongst the crowd.
Such an interesting flower shouting out through their bull horn that spring has arrived.
