I'm a bit late to the party this year, daffodils have been in the shops for a while now but it was only at the weekend that I bought my first couple of bunches.
I always buy them tightly in bud as they don't take long to open up and if you buy them already flowering, they're just about done with in a day or two.
Mick's never keen on having daffodils in the house as he hates their scent. I know there are lots of people like this and I think it's one of those smells which can seem heavenly to some and absolutely awful to others, I'm just glad that I'm in the first camp, Mick has to lump it!
It's a wonderful time of year for cut flowers and bulbs. Tulips are another of my favourites which are in the shops now, I have an amaryllis which is growing in a pot, albeit quite slowly at present, and I also have some indoor hyacinths which will be flowering before long, and none of these are very expensive to buy. Such a lovely choice of blooms to brighten up our homes.
