Thank you David. :)

Looks like it's going to be a good flowering season for winter blooming Narcissus here,as we normally don't get a heavy number of blooms in the shady woodland conditions that prevail currently ,with the sun appearing late above ,then disappearing early behind, the trees.

However i have a nice pot of N. romieuxii with over a dozen buds ready to open in the next few days ,as well as a number of other pots showing potential ....

Maybe ,just maybe i will see some colour on N.rom.Julia Jane and N.rom.Joy Bishop for the first time ever in a few weeks or so. :-\ :-\

Cheers Dave.

A couple more...
One lonely little N. cyclamineus... wonder if it will last?  Hmm, reconsidering, perhaps this is a washed-out 'Jetfire'?

I love these little "rock garden" types (or so they are described in the catalogues)... 'Sundial':

A most cheerful assortment of Narcissus Lori!  More and more I've been looking to add color and texture to the garden, not always getting bogged down in the names, the plants bring cheer with or without the preoccupation of remembering the names first hand.

Mark, after just having gone through 5 days of rain, I was reminded of another great thing about daffodils... they stay open, rain or shine!

Another little favorite... about 12" tall with a very flat pleated trumpet.

Found growing in a tiny colony on a steep banking above a very wet grazed meadow in an isolated hamlet in the Picos de Europa National Park. Images captured 24th May 2011.

Cliff, I just sat and stared at that pic.  There is something about its simplicity and beauty that really catches my eye. 

The bells complete with their own clappers...

Daffodil season starts in June here - so we nearly co-incide with it where Lori lives!
We've had a lot of "hoop petticoat" types, like this seedling which appeared near a clump of "Smarple" back in July

Some daffodils just starting now
Narcissus 'Slip'ry' - A Glenbrook Bulb Farm hybrid

N.'Orcluse' in the GBF "Little Detective" series

N. 'Ianmon' another GBF hoop

and 'Tracey'

I must say, that is quite mind-bending, Fermi!!

It's lovely to see those beautiful daffs!
