Photo-a-Day (Monday, 29th March, 2021)
That's a lovely photo Edna. Who'd have thought back in the sixties we would find daffodils growing in Greenough St ... even Wordsworth would be proud!
Edna, that is one happy pic, a host of golden daffodils !
The flower show the says Spring is here. Very nice Edna.
What a lovely photo of Spring. So heartening.
Its nice when you are riding round to see rows of daff everywhere. They brighten up many a dull day
A lovely swathe of daffodils there Edna,so cheerful,well done.
lovely photo Edna!
Wigan council do such a good job in brightening up the coucil estates with spring flowers
The bottom end of Beech Hill ave also looks lovely but I do sometimes wonder if they put to many flowers in one area and leave other parts of the estate rundown and bleak looking.
Give me a row of terraced houses any day! How soon we forget the splendour that was Wigan....
Beautiful . They're like candles lighting up the town .
Blimey Edna! Greenhough Street? In my mind's eye I still see Central Park, Ball & Boot and double deck buses going up the slope.
Beautiful photo - good on a Monday morning.
There are still many rows of terraced houses in Wigan. I live in one that was built in 1900 and I love it and we step straight out onto the pavement from our front door. I have never known what it is to have a garden, back or front., and maybe that is why I like to look at Spring flowers in other peoples' gardens or by the side of the road. My daffodils are in plant pots in the back yard.
Edna,that's a lovely photo,it does brighten anyone's day..and thank you.
I lived in a red brick terrace for 30 years and moved to downsize. A better built house would have been hard to find.
Even my surveyor was aghast at my leaving it, as he said " it's better than the one you are going to!" What I do miss is the garden wall around the back ... beats any wooden fencing .. C'est la vie...
Thank you everyone.x and thanks to Wigan in Bloom.
I must thank Veronica, for encouraging me to take photos.xx
That Veronica's only after you taking a snap of us, (Dolly and Laura), amongst the daffodils with your Box Brownie, Edna! (I think we'd look rather fetching, Dolly dear....don't forget to powder your nose!). xxxxx
Veronica,I'd give anything for a walled garden,the gales have made a right mess of the fencing,but I'm afraid it'll have to stay that way..plus a walled garden looks lovely.
Nicely captured Edna, I was stuck at the lights on Schofield Lane last week and was admiring the display of Daffodils along there too, a good display along the roadsides this year of Daffodils and Crocus.
Don't mention it Edna I'm far too lazy... Irene , you're right we would look fetching, especially wearing hats with feathers. Maureen I put evergreens in front so I don't see the damn things...
Irene, I would love to take a photo of (Dolly and Laura) amongst the Daffs.Get your glad rags on!! xx
We might surprise you one of these days, Edna....isn't it lovely to have a bit of fun?! We might go off the subject a bit but we do no harm and we are not stopping anyone's comments about the photos. Your lovely daffodils cheered us all up today. Thankyou. xx
Funny how a picture stirs a memory . Years ago I was stopped by an old chap on Pepper Lane . I knew him only vaguely for he was more of my Grandad's age . A pleasant and friendly gent but like many of his generation a little taciturn in expressing how he felt .
" Jus' look at yon Daffs son ", he said in passing .
" What about them " , I asked .
" Well " , he said as he gazed out in admiration at the sea of lemon , orange and cream hoods nodding away in the field , " They're Awreet aren't they ".
Edna's Daffs maybe pretty . Or beautiful . But best of all , they're Awreet aren't they !
I love that story, Poet!
It was a common sight at one time with the old men stopping to chat. One Old Bill as he's known, still does near me, and I can't avoid him, I have to put my bag down and listen,.. trouble is he's not much older than me!
