It's been a very mild winter in the Austin, Texas area and I suppose that is why my daffodils have made an appearance in February. I didn't expect to see my newly planted daffodils until March, but here they are! I planted these bulbs in mid December and they are already showing their bright, sunny faces in the backyard.
I received these bulbs from Colorblends as they were a sponsor of the Minnesota Garden Bloggers Fling I attended last summer. The bulbs I received are a blend of up to 10 different varieties of daffodils called the Gritty Southern Blend. This beautiful girl is an early riser, so I am anxious to see the other nine varieties that will be joining them.
Here's a link to the Colorblends web site and this specific blend: http://www.colorblends.com/Wholesale-Flowerbulbs/Daffodil-Bulbs/Daffodil-Blends/Gritty-Southern-Daff-Blend#.WJ4ERWuQypo
