Wild daffodils in April


These are just getting to their best about now 7th April.
They are not considered truly native but thoroughly naturalised especially alongside streams where they seem to especially favour sandy riverbanks and adjacent damp pastures or woodland.

It's thought they were possibly brought to Yorkshire from the Eastern Mediterranean at the time of the Crusades.
The sap has astringent properties which meant it was grown as a herb in monastery gardens.
