As I sat on the ground taking macro images of some newly emerging daffodils, the phrase "Daffy-down-Dilly" came to mind. There was something in childhood there and I found the rhyme and the author. Thanks to the internet!

"The catchy name 'Daffy-down-dilly' originates from the novel Little Daffydowndilly which was written by the acclaimed American author Nathaniel Hawthorne (1804 - 1864). Nathaniel Hawthorne was born in Salem, Massachusetts. "


Has come to town

With a yellow petticoat

And a pretty green gown


Here are some photos of the full flowers and some macro shots of the flowers in my Ithaca garden.  I purchased a new tripod to help with these and am enjoying the ability to capture macro shots in focus.

This is what the back yard looks like in March, with the pond covered with floating lotus pods
