Daffodil Harvest - Helen

For someone who has lived on a farm the harvest theme provided an opportunity to reminisce using fabric. Our family farm included a dairy, an apple and pear orchard, extensive market garden, daffodils and the "crop" for which the family was well known in the state - gladioli, grown for both the cut flower and bulb markets. In the latter years of ownership the daffodils became the main activity  - my late uncle achieved his ambition of completely covering the eight acre paddock with daffodils, including the banks and down to the water's edge of the dam in the paddock!
