We are posting the late season daffodils today due to the fact that we will be gone for a few days. These flowers will not be in bloom for bloom day this month, it is hoped that they are still in bloom when we return from our trip, but to be sure that the later blooming daffs get some much deserved exposure, now presenting: most of them. A couple are barely out of the ground, newly planted late last fall, so they are not featured here. One, N. Sinopel
is just really late and will be shown whenever she decides to open her petals. Shown above is Narcissus Limbo
. This one was purchased because the photo in the catalog showed the petals to be the color of orange sherbert. We have taken pictures with every kind of light behind them and while lovely, the petals are not orange.
N. Limbo has dark yellow petals and a very orangey red trumpet.
Some may find this combo of N. Pink Pride and N. Limbo too stimulating for their delicate sensibilities. Our sensibilities are leather tough, and find the two together delightful.
N. Gentle Giant
N. Scarlet Gem
This shot was not cropped because I like the blurry background composed of heathers, grape hyacinths and spirea ‘Magic Carpet’
, I even like the rebar pole. Leather, I tell you.
, possibly N. ‘After All’
, sold as N. ‘Angel Eyes’ but lacking the green center so who knows?

Our bags are coming down from the attic, the summery attire is at the ready, comfortable walking shoes, sunglasses, hat, and extra camera memory cards are on the packing list. Print outs of directions, flight info, itineraries are at hand. It will be difficult to sleep tonight knowing what fun awaits. Is Austin ready for the barrage of garden bloggers? ‘Cause we’re ready for Austin!
