Daffodil #1

When we moved here 20+ years ago, there was only one type of daffodil; it was a small white daffodil that blooms late in the season. We have planted a number of different daffodils over the years. Some have done well; others haven’t. The weather here is generally a little warm for daffodils and bulbs in general.

Several years
ago, I planted bulbs of three different daffodils; two did well and the third didn’t. W and J planted a large assortment of bulbs last fall. This winter past has been cooler than in previous years with multiple cold fronts. Most of the daffodils have done well this year.

This daffodil was the first to bloom this year; it
began blooming on February 20th.
