This Spring, the Oriel Yr Ardd Gallery in the National Botanic Garden of Wales will be showcasing the work of Garden volunteer and photographer Mike Danford. In 2018, Danford was asked to search for and record a varied selection of the Garden’s living daffodil collection.
Whilst the Welsh flower is commonly known for being a vibrant shade of yellow, the flower can also boast orange, pink, green or white tones. They can also vary in sizes and display a complex array of flower structures. These variations are perfectly capured in Danford’s booklet and exhibition ‘Daffodils’, which are part of the Growing the Future project at the National Botanic Garden of Wales.
The exhibition will run from Tuesday 7th February until Sunday 7th April. Prints of all images can be reserved for purchase in the Garden’s Stable Block shop. To find out more about the exhibition, please visit the Garden’s website.
