What is tattoo Tuesday about?

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:
