We like to think that the first sight of daffodils blooming merrily is a sign of Spring, which seems to be long awaited this year, after such a cold winter.  As one of our fans said on our Facebook page, 'there is nothing like a dance with the daffodils'.

Here in the UK we are almost spoilt for choice when it comes to gardens to visit to see daffodils blooming, there are so many of them. We have put together a list  of these UK gardens where you can indulge your passion for daffodils, as well as other Spring favourites.

We know we won't have included them all, so please let us know any other gardens that you know are great for daffodil viewing, so we can add them to our list.

Enjoy the Daffodils!
