One Response to Gloucestershire’s Golden Triangle 2019 Daffodil Festival

    Barbara Davis and The Golden Triangle.

    Lynne and Jan Dalton have just read the Society’s post about the 2019 Golden Triangle Daffodil Festival and the very sad news at the end concerning Barbara Davis’ recent passing.
    Lynne and I met up with Barbara 20+ years ago on our first ever visit to the wild daffodils in and around the three counties of Gloucs. , Herefords. and Worcs. A retired schoolteacher, Barbara was a very artistic amateur cartographer and could make a mundane map spring into life, which she did in the case of the Dymock and surrounding daffodil walk guides.
    We learnt so much about the daffodils and the Dymock poets(Rupert Brooke, Robert Frost, Wilfred Gibson, Edward Thomas and John Drinkwater) through Barbara’s enthusiasm, that I joined the Friends of the Dymock Poets Society and spent many years reading their works on the local flora and fauna.
    Barbara was so pleased to see visitors at her lovely cottage near Ryton and she took us out on long walks through all the daffodil paths and woods for several years. Even though we were younger then she could leave us standing and breathless on some of the steeper traverses and hilly areas.
    Barbara was a local hero who loved the daffodils and countryside around her home and even had a rest home in her garden for walkers to sit awhile and read the information she had put up about the daffodil and Poets paths.
    We and all her friends will miss her cheery character and remember what a shining light she was. God Bless, Barbara. Jan & Lynne
