Do you remember me having to buy tulips from the supermarket a couple of weeks ago because they didn't have any daffodils? Well, I had to go in to Leeds on Saturday to get some material which Eleanor needed for her Textiles coursework at school. We went to Kirkgate Market, one of the largest indoor markets in Europe. It also has an outdoor section too. There's a stall there, B&M fabrics, which is really good. Eleanor got everything she needed at a very reasonable price, and the staff are very knowledgeable and helpful.
There's some great flower stalls in the market and I just happened to notice some daffodils as I was passing one, £1 a bunch or £2 for three bunches. I went for three.
Aren't they gorgeous? Definitely worth the wait.
They were tightly in bud when I bought them on Saturday, but as you can see, they've opened out already.
I'm very happy now that I've got my daffodil fix.
