Brilliant


Comment by kath on 26th March 2014 at 06:35
lovely. I've waked past there many a time.


Comment by Catherine on 26th March 2014 at 08:17
Lovely photo.
I love daffodils we have loads in our borders and rockery.
A sign that Spring is here.


Comment by Mick on 26th March 2014 at 08:50
Dont Wigan council do an excellent job in planting all these lovely golden daffodils.

I was wondering up there last week.
When all at once I saw that crowd,
of golden daffodils
They where just next to the Balcarres pub beneath a big tree
fluttering and dancing in the Scholes breeze.


Comment by Thomas(Tom)Walsh on 26th March 2014 at 08:55
Martin Ryan, of Rugby League fame, was the landlord in 1950s although it was The Balcarres Arms in those days, I don't know when Earl was added


Comment by Anne on 26th March 2014 at 08:56
The name of that pub always sounds like the title of a swashbuckling tale. Excellent piccy.


Comment by brian d. on 26th March 2014 at 09:00
Spring in schools,can't be better,
Smashing PIC. Harry.


Comment by Colin Harlow on 26th March 2014 at 09:49
Lovely shot Harry, Spring is here and the birds are singing. In a few weeks time the daffodils will be gone and the trees will be in leaf, Magic.


Comment by Phil Harrison on 26th March 2014 at 10:14
This lovely photo has made me wonder: how many daffodils did William Wordsworth see?


Comment by maggie on 26th March 2014 at 10:56
the site of Wordsworth's daffodils is on the northern banks of Ullswater. I have seen it & it is as beautiful as the poem says. I do not know how many there were, but a lot!


Comment by Ron D on 26th March 2014 at 11:43
Nice pick, nice pint ,can't be bad .


Comment by Loz on 26th March 2014 at 12:26
Phil, he saw a 'host', which in Wordsworth's time was 122.


Comment by brian d. on 26th March 2014 at 13:03
its spring in scholes too.


Comment by Harry C. on 26th March 2014 at 13:24
Tom, I put a photo of the Balcarres arms on photo a day 28/3/2009 I think it was just after it had changed. It was my local in the late 1950's early 60's, and I started my stag party there in March 1966.
Thanks for your comments all.


Comment by Cyril on 26th March 2014 at 13:32
Clumps of Daffodils always brighten up an area, there is also a grand display of Daffodils on both sides of Bolton Road Aspull.

Mick the Daffodil bulbs were more than likely paid for from the local councillors Brighter Borough Fund, and it's working too.


Comment by Garry on 26th March 2014 at 14:34
Cyril...there are Daffodils all over the Wigan borough, not just Scholes and Aspull.

Nice one Harry, great shot


Comment by David Fairclough on 26th March 2014 at 21:20
Phil, 10,000

Ten thousand saw I at a glance
Tossing their heads in sprightly dance.
