A Host of Golden Daffodils

Alright, I admit it.  I've having so much fun with my new phone.  Yesterday I drove to a few places I had seen during the week, where I wished I had had my camera.  This time I had my phone. I'm still impressed with how high the resolution is.  I have to resize them way down for the blog.  It is also amazingly fast.  With my Sony Cybershot 14.1, I have to wait several seconds between shots.  With the phone I can shoot in rapid succession.  I know that this will come in handy.

Part of several large beds at the Newtown Library where we had our FiberWorks meeting yesterday.

Two very large beds at the Brookfield Police station parking lot.

I should have moved back farther for this one.  The huge bed went all around the sign.

More at the Municipal Center

These stunning larger-than-life sculptures, by the artist Peter Busby from Cromwall, CT, stand at the entrance to the Municipal Center in Brookfield.    They were added one at a the time.  The first year was the big male,  the next year the female and the last year the foal. At Christmas they wear big wreaths of fresh greens and big red bows.  They look different from every angle and they always make me smile.

My humble offering in front of my porch.  I like the way they look with the lime green spirea, but I have to plant more daffies next year.  They look so fabulous when planted en masse.

Beautiful pictures, and I agree these phones have fantastic camera's. I envy your spring colors, still pretty dull up north.

I plant daffodils almost every fall and every spring I have fewer rather than more! I thought they were supposed to multiply with very little care! It's true that we have pretty poor soil - guess I'll have to fertilize them more often. Great shots - glad you like your new phone!
