The people of Thriplow like their daffodils. There are thousands of them all over the village, from the grandest of gardens to humblest of verges and hedgerows. Since the late 1960s they've held a Daffodil Weekend to raise money for local charities, but if you want to really enjoy the flowers then go on a day in mid-week and avoid the crowds - though even then you'll not be alone.
There's still some bunting and the information caravan left over from last weekend's event. So won't you join me for an hour or so's gentle wander around this lovely Cambridgeshire village on a perfect spring afternoon?
There are said to be well over a hundred different varieties of daffs growing here, including "Thriplow Gold" which is named after the village. Who knew there were so many kinds?
