Tenant House Daffodils


Clumps of daffodils are perennial reminders of tenant houses that once dotted the landscape of Dallas County. Today, most of these simple wooden structures are going or long gone. Here, the tin roof of a tenant house porch has fallen across the front porch.

Cool perspective on a relic.

The flowers are a great contrast with the background.

The yellow flowers are a friendly welcome to an old home that doesn't seem so welcoming anymore.

I agree with marley, the composition of this is really interesting.

I love daffodils almost as much as sunflowers. They are happy flowers: )

Daffodils like this must keep coming up and blooming for hundreds of years! Driving around the country, you can see these at old house places way after the house is gone. Beautiful!

I echo Marley: the contrast between the pretty flowers and the ruins behind is striking.

The daffodils are beautiful. I hope the tenant farmers and their families have gone on to a better life.

It's beautiful daffodils but the house is destruction.

Just a little bit of color to remind what may have been a home.

I love these against the rusty tin. I posted daffodils Tuesday. I must've been following you around! :)
