Signs of Spring

The above daffodils were photographed this week along the banks of the Wom Brook-these plants are a familiar sight throughout various points in and around Wombourne at the moment.

The bright yellow flower is one of the national plants of Wales-the other is the leak.

The appearance of daffodils are a sure seasonal sign that gradually the cold season associated with Winter is slowly giving way to the gradually rising temperatures of Spring, although early morning walkers along the Brook would have disagreed with this over the last few days, as they were greeted by frosts and cold winds!
(This bulbous plant is characterised by its bright yellow flower having a long trumpet-like centre. For the botanists amongst you, the daffodil is from the
genus Narcissus, family liliaceae
)
