Among the trees and the calming waters of the River Thet sits this island of daffodils.
Normally hidden away from the public, visitors were welcomed for one morning to enjoy and capture a sight of spring.
The daffodils were planted by Shelia and Peter Rippon in their garden in Nether Row, Thetford.
“We have been here over 40 years and we have put in around 1,000 daffodils or something like that.
“This year it is quite a good showing.”
The garden is not just abundant with flowers - although forget-me-nots will flower once the daffodils go - but animals too.
Mr Rippon said swans, geese, ducks, kingfishers and deer can often been seen.

Mr Rippon opened his garden, which he said was full of nettles when he first moved in, after being encouraged to show off the beautiful spectacle.
