I always look forward to daffodil time, I just can't get enough of them. I love to see great drifts of them bobbing about in the breeze, but I equally love to see them in a vase in my room, they really brighten up the last dark days of winter.
It was my mum and dad's fifty seventh wedding anniversary on Monday, so I bought them a lovely bouquet of flowers, but couldn't resist also buying them a couple of bunches of daffodils, and at the same time, bought a couple of bunches for myself too. These are the first I've bought this year, but definitely won't be the last.
They had tight buds when bought, but they'd started opening up the following day, it doesn't take long for them to open out fully.
I'm just waiting for the ones I planted in containers in autumn to do their thing now. They've poked their noses above the compost but they're not doing much else at the moment.
