I like daffodils,…

which for me is the spring flower,  and mostly prefer the traditional shaped, yellow ones.

I have this large group of dwarf Tete-a-tetes which have been flowering for over a month, and are only now starting to look past their best.

I also have this small group of the variety Sweetness, which are little more than a foot tall with lovely neat flowers.

Sadly there are less flowers than usual, as some plants have come up blind.

Hidden away next to the raspberries are these few bigger ones which were there when I took the plot on so I don’t know the variety.

That leaves the white Thalia to appear, which won’t be long as they are showing plenty of buds and a handful of bi-coloured, yellow and white, ones in a large pot which are showing plenty of leaves, but as yet no flower stems.

Take care, and have a good weekend!

    So pretty, I really like the shorter ones, there are some running through an open grassy area near here and they always look delightful. Hopefully the lack of flowers this year will mean that they do really well next year. CJ xx

    What a lovely sight. Daffodils are blooming here in Kentucky right now. Each spring reminds me of Wordsworth’s “host of golden daffodils” and fills me with delight.

    Like you, I feel Spring is well on its way with the Daffodil. The flower announces the arriving season just by being bright and lively. Salut. xxxx

    Your Tete-a-tetes have long tempted me to try daffs again.

    I live on a corner on a main road to the beach and I have filled my yard with Tete-a-Tetes to give all my neighbors a boost of spring. Well, I like it too. Wish I had more Bumble Bees.
