A Garden Joy: Fresh Daffodils on Our Table

daffodilbqt-09SpringThyme Delights from our Herbal Treasures’ garden!

“Gorgeous SpringThyme Day: Bradford Pear blossoms swirl like snow in warm breezes, Forsythia bloom & house scented w/Daffodils from My Garden…” @BeckyCortino

Daffodils seem to herald spring, to me. Cut flowers pictured are from a special collection I was blessed to receive as a Garden Writer, from Brent and Becky’s Bulbs.

The varieties in the 10-pound 100-bulb assortment I listed; see the list by clicking on the linked text here

Out of this very simple (cut-out of the garden and put-them-in-a-vase) arrangement, I was able to ID these varieties:

N. Dutch Master (traditional)
N. Ice Follies

…N. Ice Follies is a new variety for us this year, and is most interesting. You may be able to make out a slight color variation of the center, which occurs as the flower matures.

Update: Spring Bulbs Planted – Now Appearing!

ht-daff-0309As the second snow melted, much to our surprise, green tops and shoots of emerging daffodils were beginning to appear!

Within just a few days, some of the initial results of our late-fall bulb-planting began to become apparent.

If you read this blog very often, you may recall my sharing about receiving a surprise shipment of bulbs from our Garden Writer Friends Brent and Becky’s Bulbs

What a welcome sight!

We’ll keep you posted on the varieties and results of planting this special collection…
