Daffodils bring the Spring

Daffodils bring the Spring

(Poem (c) Linda Burns) We all love the daffodils,  We place upon our window sills.  We like how their pretty faces,  Brighten up our living spaces.  Is it Spring or Winter still?  Look upon the nearby hill.  Spring is here with tweet and trill,  If there blooms the daffodil.  If you do not find it there,  You have no need to despair.  Try as gloomy Winter will,  It can’t hold back the daffodil.  Dark green blades and bright faces,  It will bloom in all places.  You might as well give it room  The daffodil intends to bloom. **************************** Well this morning, the children of The Braybrook Centre, Wood End Primary and St Thomas’ Primary in Wednesfield, Wolverhampton, have all been very busy. Planting more than 5,000 daffodil bulbs; the children were joined by their teachers, ourselves from Parks and representatives of Woodend Community Association. The planting is to mark the 60th anniversary of HM The Queen’s accession and reign on the throne.  Nationally it will be celebrated in the form of a long weekend; with a bank holiday for the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee (which will be on Tuesday, 5 June 2012).  To form the long weekend of celebration the late May bank holiday will be moved to Monday, 4 June. The country is likely to see big celebrations over the Diamond Jubilee Weekend, with pageants, floats, street parties and many other forms of celebration.  The Department of Communities and Local Government will produce guidelines to help communities organise locally-run events.  Here in Wolverhampton, street parties to celebrate the Jubilee can be held free of charge, following organisers seeking permission to officially close roads.

Until next time.
