a big bunch of daffodils x



IMG_1269 For some reason my blog seems to be stuck on this post.

I took the photos on fathers' day a few weeks back and I loaded them into my blog not long after that.

At first I think I thought it would be a blog about spring. About how a little sunshine, an extra few minutes in the day and some pretty yellow flowers make the whole world feel like it's opening up with a zillion possibilities.

Then when I didn't write that post I think I planned to write a bit of a story about each of my girls. One at a time. Where they are, what they are thinking, loving, doing, hoping, and dreaming about.

And then when that didn't eventuate I think I intended to write something a bit more farmy. Something about how we are feeling about this growing season, about seeds and biodynamics, and chooks and sheep.

But obviously I didn't write that one either. And for some unknown reason the tab of this blog post has remained open but the text part of this blog has remained empty. It's been like that for a few weeks now. And every time I take any new photos off my camera and think about writing a different blog post, I keep coming back to this one and I get stuck all over again. I can't seem to leave this post behind It's like I'd feel guilty to cheat on it.

So basically what I'm doing here is pressing publish so I can push forward.

Hopefully I'll be back in the next day or two to talk about all that other stuff. We've got so much to catch up on, I can hardly wait.

In the meantime I'm off to try this cast off on a little blue pair of Pepper socks.
What're you up to today/tonight?

Big love - speak soon.



  1. I love these photos Kate and the honesty of this post. I went to school in a town, which I now live not far from, that holds big daffodil festival every year. I've never been but may take my girls this year! Love when they sprout at the start of each Spring.
    As for what I'm up to tonight...we just made it home from holidays up north and I'm nervously uploading photos from my camera, hoping they are as amazing as the memories. x Dre

  2. So pretty Kate! Just look at Pepper in her shorts and tights and boots, so adorable! Do you know I thought about you posting a blog this afternoon...perhaps because it is Sunday or perhaps just because you haven't posted for a while. Either way, I am so happy that you did!

    Tonight...we are preparing for another week of sheep shearing. Men, dust, sheep, sandwiches, sheep dogs, thermoses...naturally I have been busy with the camera. xx

  3. I so look forward to the first daffodils after a long winter, they look so happy :) xxx

  4. I love daffodils and spring and the idea of long and warmer days. Your photos remind me of all that, especially now, when in my corner of the world we’re beginning to feel the colds of autumn.

  5. Dear Kate,

    Your words, I am quite certain, strike a chord in many a reader's heart. I know that I've been feeling pretty much the same about blogging. Infact, today, I have linked to your post from September 9th. Thank you for taking the time to write and share. You really do make a difference.

    Warmest wishes,


  6. Ah, anything that is having is worth waiting for, Kate! (I do love it when u write more often though...... ;) )

  7. That is some pretty good photos. I am glad you posted them:)
    I really didn't know daffodils had such long stems. In the shops we only get the pure yellow daffodils, which is a shame, because the others are quite charming as well!
    I am a bit restless tonight, need a good project I can get passionate about.

  8. The daffodils are beautiful, I hope you can move onwards now. xx

  9. I've been experimenting with bind offs as well. Yesterday I used this one:

  10. Your photos are amazing and say so much in their own right, such happy family days. Elaine x

  11. The photos pretty much tell the story I think! Those bursts of sunshine yellow and the winning smiles of your girls are themselves like the warmth of a Spring day. Thumbs up for pressing publish :)

  12. While spring arrives on your side of the world, autuum turns up here in Germany! It's lovely to see all the daffodils: I can't wait for april 2015 to see some on this side of the world too! Til then I will enjoy the red leaves and the other colours of autuum!

    Take care

  13. Oh what a wonderful post! I love spring posts when fall is coming to us! Enjoy and have a great and sunny spring time! This pictures are fabulous, my dear!
    All my best from Austria

  14. I know those getting stuck feelings. Funny how they do that sometimes...
    Your girls are getting so big now Kate. Miss Jazzy especially!

  15. How fun! The yellow is just lovely and I think that last photo is just the best. Bec x

  16. Love daffodils. They always remind me of a song some friends used to sing in their band.
    Have you tried Jenny's surprisingly stretchy bind off? I'm using it on everything now pretty much unless I deliberately want a non-stretchy cast off.

    1. I haven't but I certainly will - thank so much Lynne. x

  17. Oh, that makes so much sense! But still a beautiful, interesting post, even if it's a little different to how you imagined.


Thanks so much for stopping by...

I do read every single comment you leave and appreciate it very much, but I should let you know that I can be a wee bit on the useless side when replying to comments, that's just me, everyday life sometimes gets in the I'll apologise now, just in case.
