Early Daffodils

Hollywood:


Wings of Freedom:


closer:


Barret Browning:


A couple of Easter Bonnet...a good thing as those bulbs I laboriously pulled out of the tree roots...well, it appears I mixed them up...and they now reside elsewhere...hope they enjoy them...



Changing Colors...beginning to change...


I just like this picture of a group of Changing Colors...nice that daffs allow you multiple days to photograph them...


A better picture of Blazing Star...now open:


This was labeled Orangery...but, I'm not sure that it is:


Just beginning to open...an unknown yellow that once open has near flawless blooms...


You didn't really think we'd have just daffodils today, did you? Here's the blue Roman Hyacinth...which does not increase like its cousin, the pink one...


Very first blooms on the creeping phlox...it's so pretty when it blankets the area:


First blooms last year on this creeping phlox were on 3/16/08...this year, 3/23/09...

*****
Off to dig daylilies...hope to plant peas (after I seriously weed the area) today also as we are expecting rain tonight. Found some lettuce starts yesterday (Romaine and Red Sails)...hope to get them in as well...

I so enjoy seeing the first nodding heads of daffodils in the spring.

What beautiful varieties of daffs you have. I love them all. It'll be a few weeks yet before we see daff blooms, hyacinths and creeping phlox, so I'll just enjoy yours.
Our soil is still frozen after several days of arctic winds, but today is milder. Much more to my liking, and just right for a walk to the river to see the geese. They didn't disappoint me :)
Happy Spring!

So many varieties! Last I saw so many different ones over at NellJean's. Easter Bonnet is my fave. Love the phlox too - cute blooms.

Great fun! Thanks for sharing!! :-) I've been raking and this evening I had to redistribute a tarp load of leaves back onto my sprouting tulips, daffodils, etc. The forecast is 4" of snow. We'll see. Aren't gardeners funny? ;-)
