The Daffodil Way, on the border of Gloucestershire and Herefordshire, winding through the picture, and poetry, perfect Leadon Valley, is surrounded by a plush pile carpet of daffodils during March and April

The best time for daffs is the first and second weekends in April, but that's also the busiest times. In season the little hamlets and villages around the walk put on a bit of a show for the visitors offering charming distractions like cream teas served in churchyards and in apple orchards.

Start your wandering along this eight mile way in Dymock, Queen's Wood or Kempley Green. From Dymock church the way is signposted across a footbridge to the left then along the field until you take a right turn at delightfully named Maypole Farm. The path then leads though an orchard on the way to Kemply Brook and Kemply. On either side of the walk are woods and fields with more clumps of brightly bobbing daffs.

Londoners used to come out to visit on the 'Daffodil Train', but sadly this yellow road isn't taken quite as seriously these days.

I’m impressed, I must say. Seldom do I come across a blog that’s both educative and interesting, and without a doubt, you have hit the nail on the head. The problem is an issue that not enough folks are speaking intelligently about. Now i'm very happy I stumbled across this during my hunt for something regarding this. howtohackfacebook-account.com

You are so interesting! I don't believe I've truly read through anything like that before. So wonderful to discover another person with a few unique thoughts on this issue. Seriously.. many thanks for starting this up. This website is something that is required on the internet, someone with a bit of originality! sadpoetrypub.com
