Pamela Lambourne, a Buckinghamshire Gardens Trust member and researcher, has been out early this morning ( Friday 17th March ) to photograph the unique “stream” of daffodils wending its way through the woods and round the church of St. Thomas.
Here are some photos of daffodils taken this morning in the village in MK where I live. I am sorry that the photos are not brighter but the light is not good today.
The village is called Simpson and was one of the five existing villages to be incorporated into the new plan MK back in the 60’s. It is across the road from the Open University. My husband used to walk to work along the Ouse every day.
As you can see there is an old part which existed before The Conquest. It is still small because the village is bordered by Caldecotte Lake, The River Ouse and The Grand Union Canal. There are lots of walks around the Lake, along the river and canal. There is parking for those who want to visit. There is also a good pub called The Plough which serves food from midday.
