In the early 1900’s daffodils were exported in great quantities from Guernsey to mainland Britain.
Today, some fields remain fully glorious in the spring time. Other fields, now green, show a vestige of the past with lane-side banks of daffodils thriving from bulbs thrown, like unwanted potatoes, as the export trade died off.
We have no date, just the words ‘Planting La Riante’ … or it could be La Riaute.
