Finally flowers

      After a surprise late snow, it warmed like crazy and the daffodils burst forth. Their sunny faces are immensely cheering after dark days and times.
     I like a variety of daffodils, like scrappy fabrics in quilts, so that is what I plant. I have a small yard, but the flowers do their job well.

What a glorious variety of daffodils you have!~
I love the ruffly pink one.
I remember the first time see this flower as a girl and thinking....How? how does nature make this.
I'm still in awe of them.

Beautiful daffodils! Mine bloomed last month and are gone now. I too, just love the ruffled peachy/pink one. What is it called? I want to look for these.

Your daffodils are gorgeous! I love the pink ruffly ones as well. I had a few pink ones mixed in at the house that I had before we were married. I dug them up and brought them to were we live now. The are no longer pink. I know they are the same plants from the same bulbs, but it will be interesting to see if yours keep their color over the years. I have a feeling we will continue to be "friends" for years -- I plan on it.

I know I planted mine in 1995. My dad died, my friend died, and my favorite aunt died all within a three month period. A friend told me to plant the 300 bulbs at random in my yard. When they bloomed the following year I would be feeling better about things. It was true. Also, I dug up most of them when I got married and moved. Now when they bloom here I still have wonderful memories of them.

I didn't know there were so many varieties! It's fun when they all bloom at once.

We are always so excited to see our first daffodils bloom - the noses are up in early January but it takes another many weeks before they bloom (even this year after 8 inches of snow and a week of near zero temps). Love the variety you have in your yard!
