I planted these many years ago, and I get so much pleasure when they come up every spring!

I love gardening, and these daffodils are the first hint that spring is finally here! I spend all summer in my flower gardens taking photos as the blooming progresses.

This beautiful daffy is growing in a crack between the retaining wall in front of my home and a concrete strip next to the sidewalk. I understand that there was a garden there at one time before it was cemented over.
These were "normal" daffodils until a couple of years ago. About a foot tall and large blooms. Then one year I looked out and this is what was blooming. They are only about 4-6 inches tall and the blooms aren't any bigger than the end of your finger. I have checked with many greenhouses, nurseries, and avid gardeners, and none of them have ever heard of this happening. They are perfect, just too small.
I just love WV this time of year. After a cold winter and a lot of snow, its great to get out and smell and see the flowers.
This is the photo of my jonquil. I just want to share with others.
This was the first of my flowers to poke through the cold ground this spring. These daffodils are only 6 inches high. They look so sweet with their little bright trumpets.

A quick story about these flowers. I bought bulbs but forgot about them. I think they were a year or two old. I found them in my garage all old and even molding! I said what the heck! Instead of tossing them out, I dug up a space in front of my home that looked really bare and stuck them in the dirt.
This is what became of them! What a surprise! Every year now they come up like a surprise and I remember that story over and over again. Each year the flowers come up looking prettier and larger than the year before.

Bring a ray of sunshine of the Springtime into your home with daffodils. I filled a pretty blue/yellow pitcher with water and put a few drops of blue food color into the water. I dded the yellow daffodils with a sprig of azalea greenery and it brightened up my dining room table with a blue tablecloth and blue napkins on it.
The pitcher of daffodils sit on a blue round tray which also has a ceramic yellow bird, a small tea pot in the shape of a artichoke with a small bird on the top. The brightness of the yellow daffodils reminds me of the spring breezes and the anticipation of the trees budding out and the beginning of the flowers and God's creation to reveal itself to the yard!
