Jetfire narcissus close up
The daffodils above came with our yard so I don't know what kind they are. They all did extremely well this year. I hear that's because we had such cold weather in winter!
Among the unknown variety of daffodils is one frilly one. I don't know whether this is a mutant or a "real" variety. Here's a few more daffs from around the yard.
Texas Star daffodil
Louisiana Sweetie jonquils
And just to make sure I get all the bulbs in one place, here's a Snowflake (Leucojum) for your viewing pleasure.
And just a couple more photos to go.
Pearl Maxwell camellia
Broadleaf Creeping Phlox, Phlox stolonifera ‘Sherwood Purple’
I'm very excited to see my creeping phlox blooming. I bought one plant last year as an experiment for my woodland garden. It grew a little bit but didn't really do too much. Lo and behold it's got a number of very pretty blooms now. I hope to buy some more for the area.
Also in bloom in my garden are the rosemary plants, white irises (just starting), and the beginnings of blooms on the viburnums. Hopefully I'll have the viburnums to show next month as well as a good display of rose blooms (they're taking their sweet time after this hard winter). Stay tuned tomorrow for Foliage Follow-up hosted by Pam at Digging. I hope to post on that as well. That is, if I'm not outside all day (cheers for spring weather!).
