Daffodils at Cotehele

Some people say that daffodils are a sign that spring has arrived. If that's true, spring is in full glory in the garden at Cotehele. The collection of historic daffodils includes 250 varieties, some over 200 years old and all celebrated in a fortnight-long Daffodil Festival.
