Since I'm just as clueless about the varieties of daffodils that were in the mix my mom sent me last fall, I thought it would be a good excuse to showcase them and maybe do a little research into what we're now hosting here in our dirt. Since these were a mix when they're planted, I don't know for sure -- these IDs are based on photos I've found in catalogs. Please correct me if you see any errors!
The bouquet doesn't include these, which I'm guessing are "Ice Follies" the earliest and most prolific ones.
or these, that Karen identified as the "Sir Winston Churchills."
If I had to pick a favorite, it would probably be these "Narcissus Geranium" because of their smell. They are swoon worthy.
Andromeda (pieris japonica)
A "Sungold" perennial tulip. Also a gift from mom from a previous year.
Thanks for the flowers, Mom!!
My mom down in Tallahassee reads my blog but hasn't figured out how to comment yet. So this is a thank you and a challenge to you, Mom, to try again. I'm awarding you this virtual bouquet in faith and anticipation...love you!
