How do you tell Daffodils to turn around?

One of our major projects this year was building a raised bed for all the herbs in front of our above ground pool.  I needed to move all the herbs out of the old field and so now they have a new home.  I added some Daffodil bulbs for some early Spring beauty.  They are doing a beautiful job and blooming with the nice weather, but they are facing away from the house and towards the pool side!!  I guess they are attracted to the reflection off the blue side.  How do you tell Daffodils to turn around so I can enjoy from the kitchen and the tour people can enjoy along their route??? 

I made Turkey Pot-Au-Feu and thought "Wow, this recipe perfectly exemplifies what to do with winter produce!!"  Turnips, rutabagas, carrots and I threw in some parsnips!!  I will post it on the old site

By 1:00 today in the greenhouse I had sweat pouring so bad into my eyes I could not see so I called it a "day", ran a few errands and picked up the girls from school.  I came in and made an early dinner so I could go back out...and I was so was wonderful in there, and I got tons of weeding done!!  As I was headed out I closed up the chicken door and let the "big dogs" out.  Beau, the leader male, came out carrying a "blankie" with that "don't I look cute look on his face".  Wolfie, the black male, then jumped on me like a puppy with the "don't you love me look", and then finally our female, very lazy female, came around the corner with a ball in her mouth.  You would have to know these dogs well to know what a "con job" this was!!!   Obviously the new puppy Molly is having an impact on them!!  Moonstruck signing out!!
