Has come to town
With a yellow petticoat
And a pretty green gown.
She arrived here mid-February. Suddenly daffodils were everywhere, made more lovely than usual by a cold January. We've seen daffodils for 3 weeks and some remain to open. Hawera in shade is just bursting buds. Tahiti, usually late, came on fast and some of the bulbs in sun blasted from the heat.
I think this is a Fortune hybrid.
Jetfire or Tete a Tete? Or both?
Van Sion, here for decades; half a century or more.
Tahiti, in center is blasted bud.
Tahiti in which orange edges show.
Hawera; Ice Wings behind
Hawera again. Notice backgrounds in
many of these pics show more daffodils.
Pink Charm. Always charming.
Notice the two at bottom left kissing.
Ice Wings and Sailboat
There are a few more daffodils yet to bloom here. Baby Moon is usually the last along with Misty Glen.
2010 was the first year in several that I failed to plant at least a few daffodils. I'm taking time this spring to move some that are planted too deep to bloom or are in too deep shade or otherwise in an undesirable space. I'm wavering between more daffodils or more hyacinths this fall. Maybe I'll try tulips in pots again, now that the dog is older and more discerning about her diet.
