Just because they're easy to grow, it's easy to take the cheerful Daffodil for granted.
But they're the real convincer, the evidence Spring really has sprung as they burst into glorious bloom. Carpets of wid Daffodils under trees, ribbons of gold lining the roadside & driveways, or a bright pop of colour in a pot outside a house. Suddenly after long dreary winter days, they lift my spirits.
And this year I've invested in new varieties of double Daffodils & am so impressed. Their multiple rows of petals make them look like little roses when opened fully. The colour range is good - gold, lemons & whites. And they stand up to the weather well. What not to like?
Note to self - grow more next year!
