Daffodils in Iceland

My sister (Karen Spotts) and I visited Iceland for two weeks in early June. Iceland is quite interesting – with countless beautiful waterfalls and captivating rugged territory. There are more sheep and goats than I would want to count – and few fences! Iceland was inhabited by Vikings around 800/900 AD. The government is quite concerned about global warming – since much of their habitable territory is but a few inches above the ocean! The center of the island is covered by a rapidly melting glacier. Of course, I looked for daffodils – and found a few blooming, naturalized in a forest preserve.
