Last Monday I posted a photo of the daffodils in my flower bed. Weighted down by frost and snow, only one was blooming and it was very droopy. I am happy to report that this cheery little crowd brushed themselves off, and have been making me smile every time I look out my kitchen window.
|Daffodils or narcissus? I really don't know the difference.|
Two years ago I planted 50 tulip bulbs. Well, I planted about 35 of them. Tired of trying to dig holes in the rocky soil and with snowflakes beginning to flurry, I just buried the remaining 15 in one of my fenced, raised beds. Last fall, wanting that garden spot for something else, I moved all those tulip bulbs to another part of our property.
|These tulips bloomed in spite of my efforts!|
Or so I thought! Apparently, I missed four. When I walked around the corner of our house yesterday, I was surprised to see these vibrant blooms. They are poking up through the tomato fencing I had stored on top of the raised bed for the winter. I couldn't help but laugh. These are the only tulip flowers on our property this year - the deer demolished the rest!
Tulips are my favorite flower, but if I plant any more spring bulbs, it will not be tulips. Apparently, the deer really love them too!
Can anyone tell me the difference between a daffodil and a narcissus?
