What is tattoo Tuesday about?

April 21, 2015

DSC01822Sunday was Daffodil Sunday at Lakeview Cemetery.  This historic cemetery, founded in 1869, encompasses over  285 acres and is the final resting place of people such as John D. Rockefeller and President James Garfield.

Every spring over 100,000 bulbs on Daffodil Hill bloom in great profusion. Last Sunday was probably the peak of the blooming season.

People and cameras also were blooming on the hillside and it was difficult to take a photo without also capturing people enjoying the view.

Did you know there is a Daffodil Society?

Do you know the difference between daffodils and narcissus?  There isn’t any according to the Flower Expert.  Both are members of the genus Narcissus.

Did you know daffodils have their own poem, written by William Wordsworth?

They also lend themselves to lovely tattoos:

  1. There’s a little town in the Sierra foothills that has a daffodil day like that. Always mean to go. Nice pictures sans tourists. Don’t know why but I find the dafidill tats creepy more then say skulls. Wired I know 🙂


    • I find daffodils to be hopeful – even though it snowed last night. People do strange things to their bodies – which is fodder for tattoo Tuesday.


  2. You take way more better pics than me.

    As with the daffodils, the beauty fades so quickly. It does not revive in the Spring.


    • I take better pics of you!
