Last month we had the first daffodil flower for the year! It is called 'First Stanza', a cross between Narcissus elegans and N. tazetta which we got from Lawrence Trevanion in Canberra
Another autumn flowering daff, Narcissus viridiflorus has started to bloom,
Fermi de Sousa,
Central Victoria, Australia
Min: -7C, Max: +40C
The winter-flowering hoop petticoat daffodils have started.
In our garden the white ones are always first; these are what I think are 'Nylon' but apparently that name has been supplanted by 'Nylon Group' as they are a bit variable
This one is a seedling which came up nearby
Lovely, Fermi. Narcissus season here seems a distant memory. Hot weather, then cold, then hot. Poor plants don't know what season they're in!

Glad you can enjoy the daffs vicariously, Claire.
this is one of Lawrence Trevanion's from Canberra and is called 'Gefk' - apparently he has named a few after noises his children made as bablies!
This is a "stray", not sure if it's a seedling or from a bulblet which was repotted with something else,
I've just repotted my "hoops", hoping they'll enjoy a nice rest over summer. Yours are always so nice!
That's because I only show you the nice ones, Claire
Here's another nice one, 'Viristar' a cross from Lawrence Trevanion in Canberra, one of his N. viridiflorus hybrids, 'Hillstar' x 'Emerald Sea', it opens greenish with a lemon cup which fades to white-white,
Some more "hoops" in the garden:
Narcissus cantabricus seed collected in Spain in 2009 and sown on July 4, 2010
A seedling which appeared near N. 'Jessamy'
Narcissus 'Ben Bler', one of Rod Barwick's "Little Detective series"
I find these hoops very delightful-thanks for sharing

Thanks, Harold, enjoying your summer pics as well!
Here are a couple of tazetta hybrids:
1) Taztep, from Lawrence Trevanion in Canberra
2) a 8 W-Y hybrid whose name was indecipherable on the bag on which I'd written it!
This is what I presume is a much older tazetta hybrid, but again, not one I can name, it seems to be half way between 'Grand Monarque' and "Straws",
