Planted yet more daffodils -Carlton and the little cyclamineus Narcissus Jenny. She is a little beauty with swept back white petals and pale lemon trumpets that fade to a creamy white. The little species crocus are still blooming despite 26 degrees C on Friday night. The Narcissus Grand Soleil d'Or likewise are still giving a great show. They looked pretty flat and dejected on Saturday morning but soon recovered in the sunshine. And the snowdrops -my goodness they have been incredible this winter. The first ones were open on Dec 9th and I still have giant snowdrops in bloom. The few muscari also have braved the cold so far to keep on blooming. The first yellow crocus were open today -the species one E. P. Bowles. People are missing out not planting more of the little species bulbs. They may be smaller but they pack quite a punch at this time of year. I love them. They are wonderful around trees and on rock gardens, in planters and in the front of borders. Also if oyu have a mini Fairy garden as opposed to a micro mini you will find they look awesome there too. If I could upload a photo I would. Oh and before I forget, the first yellow daffodil Rijnveld's Early Sensation opened today and there are quite a few in bud following on its heels.
Now I am having trouble uploading any photo -the option to browse the computer files seems to have disappeared. Wish I were more of a hi-tech girl! There must be an easy way to find my pictures. So help needed again please!!!!
