Long time readers of this blog will remember that I love daffodils. Every year at the peak of the season I like to gather them up and force them to pose for a portrait. My idea being, that in the fall when I think of buying more daffodil bulbs, I will refer back to these portraits and NOT BUY the same old same old. Of course I forget to refer back. But I really do try not to buy the same old ones each time. Although I do think that when I buy new bulbs the containers have been mixed up and many times I end up with the same old ones that I already have.
Here is this year’s group.
When we visited Amsterdam I did make an effort to go to the famous flower market and buy some daffodil bulbs there. I was not impressed by the selection. Honestly, I had a better selection in the US. I was after these.
Which have a delicate pink/yellow center. These are the ones that I planted at John and Richard’s house (the first place where we lived).
And here is this year’s special crop from Amsterdam
Hanging out with their friends the asparagus ferns and the hydrangeas.
Not the rose turning to gold center that I was hoping for. Still pretty.
Okay, that’s the end of daffodils for this year.
This one popped up. Now, I’m happier with this year’s crop.
