Daffodil festival, Meriden CT

daffodil , originally uploaded by digijinx.

I was so looking forward to this festival since it was my first real shot at spring. The Daffodils, the early bloomers. This is an annual festival at Meriden,CT and I was looking forward to a whole batch of daffodils (they said there would be 600,001 of them) all in the same place, but they were spread out in batches all over Hubbard Park and it was actually fun going around trying to spot them. They were everywhere. Soon as we got down from the bus I spotted them.

Quoting Wordsworth
"I wandered lonely as a cloud
That floats on high o'er vales and hills
When all at once I saw a crowd
A host of golden yellow daffodils
Beside the lake, beneath the trees,
Fluttering and dancing in the breeze..."

That was the first thought on my mind and it was clicking time.Amidst all the crowd and the food and the fun I managed to get some decent shots of the golden yellow daffodils.

The food at the festival was awesome too. I had the best waffles there.along with funnel cakes,cotton candy.

Here is the link to the whole set. Enjoy!

Well...its spring so you can always expect more posts! Today I tried to click some shots of the white dogwoods. It was a cold day and the wind was not helping too. Soon as I neared the dogwoods the sun hid behind the clouds..just my luck! I clicked some more shots of the pink dogwoods (I still like the pink dogwoods better.)

These flowers are just downright beautiful. I know there are white dogwoods too. I have quite a few pink dogwood trees around the neighborhood and I decided to click some shots over the evening. The sun came out once I came home! that was sad. Still I managed to get some shots of these beautiful things. Since these trees were just on the sidewalk was easy for me to click, yet I had to still avoid some serious staring from the dogs. There is a dogwood festival coming up,lets see if I get the time to make it down there.

Here is the link to the whole set njoy!

white tulips

These tulips are growing near the back fence...near the garage in my backyard and they presented an awesome opportunity to click with a dark background. I could really see that it made a big difference when your background is darker! and the flowers come out really outstanding!!
I enjoyed clicking. Here's the whole set.

The golden yellow Daffodils showed up first. Sincere as always the first ones to bloom soon as spring starts. The tulips came next, I didnt know there were tulip bulbs in my yard and i got soo excited seeing them bloom, which obviously meant the camera had to come out for some pictures!

Here is the link to the whole set.Enjoy them..Spring is really beautiful
