Daffy for Dillies


I'm downright daffy for daffodils.  Such merry blossoms... so many shades of yellow welcoming the warm spring sunshine.  

These earliest blooms grow in my herb bed. 

Notice that I'm working the daffodil look myself... yellow blouse, green capris, dirt brown sandals. Silly? Maybe...  but it is a celebration of spring and a girl must dress for the occasion! 


Oh, I just love these frilly trumpets!



A few of the naturalized daffodils in the front forty.

I planted a bushel of mixed bulbs 13 years ago and it was full of  lovely surprises. 

These daffodils run the gamut from white to cream to yellow to orange... from giant blossoms to petite clusters... from long trumpets to no trumpets.

Notice the flower with the spider. Looks like it has fangs of its own-- Mr. Spider better watch out!




Did I mention I was daffy for daffodils?

 Yep, daffy at the very least...
