Golden Echo Daffodils




I got a little camera crazy


This is the first time I've had daffodils in a garden in, maybe 5, perhaps 6 years?


I've missed them

funny thing though, I'm pretty sure I read the label when I bought these.  but then perhaps not.


I thought they would be taller, and whiter, with longer noses


Good thing I'm not too fussy and love them just the same.

  2. Daffodils are so thrilling to see when spring finally starts. So glad yours decided to make an appearance for you. They're adorable, even if they were mis-labeled.

    1. It's more a case of does the flower look like what they say in the catalogue. They were labelled correctly but the description seemed a little different than the reality. That's catalogues though - they show flower glamour shots.

  3. What a lovely variety - such delicate colouring - our daffs are over now sadly

    1. we've been rather fortunate to have a small bout of coolish weather here this week. Lots of rain and lower temperatures means the bulbs are sticking around a bit longer.

  4. Actually I think these are particularly pretty. I like the way the yellow bleeds like watercolor paint into the main part of the flower.
