Daffodil Portrait

I see eye rolls!  Just pass this by if you don’t want to see my daffodils.  The pollen from them bothers both of us so I can’t pick them and bring them in.  Instead I take pictures.  This year I have had a lot blooms since I added a number of bulbs last fall and since Elizabetta is around to protect them from the evil little burrowing animal that eats the bulbs.  And I sprinkled crushed red pepper on the bed a few times.

Don’t think that this is the last you’ll see of daffs.   Oh nooo!  More to come.

    Absolutely glorious!! I remember the geraniums on the California highway medians and the first time I saw them as a relocated Easterner, that they were a splended sight. People had them planted all over the place there. Imagining your climate is very similar to Southern California, you should also have a profusion of blooms. There is another one, gallardia (sp?) daisies that were/are in profusion there. After a while we’d get tired of them since they never died. Love the pansy shots.

  3. Your flowers are beautiful! There are a perfect post for spring.
