Lavender Daffodils was created in 2009, only to be renamed LD in 2011. Originally created to be a private blog for me to post “diary” type entries, it has now morphed into a place where I allow others into my day to day so that my friends from so many different places and walks of life can check in and see what the Warren clan is up to! I hope you find my posts to be encouraging, insightful, creative and most of all I hope you leave here recognizing the beauty in your own life!
The name Lavender Daffodils was inspired by my love for William Wordsworth and this poem.
“I Wondered Lonely As a Cloud”
That floats on high o'er vales and hills, When all at once I saw a crowd, A host, of golden daffodils; Beside the lake, beneath the trees, Fluttering and dancing in the breeze. Continuous as the stars that shine And twinkle on the milky way, They stretched in never-ending line Along the margin of a bay: Ten thousand saw I at a glance, Tossing their heads in sprightly dance. The waves beside them danced; but they Out-did the sparkling waves in glee: A poet could not but be gay, In such a jocund company: I gazed--and gazed--but little thought What wealth the show to me had brought: For oft, when on my couch I lie In vacant or in pensive mood, They flash upon that inward eye Which is the bliss of solitude; And then my heart with pleasure fills, And dances with the daffodils.
