I can't imagine Spring without Daffodils, can you? This winter I'll go over the pictures from Spring 07 (maybe finally organize them) and anticipate the pictures to come. Because...there will be new Daffodils to enjoy!
Here's what I've acquired so far (maybe a couple more? We'll see...):
Butter & Eggs
Sugar & Spice
Wings of Freedom
Most, not all, of these I ordered in Spring, the best time to acquire Daffodils in my opinion, and so when they arrive now (in Fall), it is like getting a surprise package. I'll be updating my spreadsheet, adding these new arrivals...and reflecting on the performance I saw this past Spring. It will be time to note those (not in the majority, thankfully) that don't seem to perennialize.
This year, I was able to order a number of these through the Washington Daffodil Society. My neatly packaged order arrived this week (103007). These Daffodils have come from specialist growers (exciting!). Won't Spring be fun!
P.S. I thought about this, spring bulbs and all, after browsing over on Lisa at Millertime's blog...wait until you see what she's planting! (We will all be virtually visiting her next spring!) You have to scroll down and have a look at her journal!
I'm very excited about a book review that should be up next! I think you'll like this book, too!
