Last and first

It’s nice to see that the last few daffodils are still flowering over the Easter weekend.  These traditional ones are a mix of single, double and triple flowers on one stem as can seen in this picture.

I’ve been mostly pottering rather than plotting the past couple of days, and whilst doing so I was surprised to see the first strawberry flowers already appearing.  I hope it’s an indication that it will be a good year for them.

 

Enjoy the rest of the long weekend, and have a good week!

    It’s been in the 80sF for the past few days here, so the daffodils have gone. Nice to see some bright fresh yellow in your post! Happy Easter Day.

    A few strawberry flowers here in the garden as well, but not down at the allotment yet – it’s a bit colder and more open there. Glad you’ve got some pottering in. A little of the same here too. CJ xx

    Our first is your last. It is also good to see perennials coming to life. Too early for fruit flowers here.
    Hope your Easter weekend has been good to you.

      Menhir that’s a clear indication of the difference between where we are. That’ not surprising.
      It has thanks, I’ve done plenty of plotting and reading. xx

  8. My wild and domestic strawberry plants are flowering too. The wild ones produce the tiniest flowers, but the taste is amazing! X

    Had to go and check after seeing your post. Yes, we’ve got strawberry flowers too. Do hope we have a good crop this year. We’ve still got some yellow daffodils. My husband bought a £30 sack for £2 in December and planted them at Christmas. They came up about 2 weeks after all the others. I love a bargain. x
