Hello Daffodil

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. 

Thanks, Colorblends!


  1. It's so exciting to see the Spring garden emerge, isn't it? This is a beautiful daffodil. I've got 2 open and can't wait for the rest of them.

  2. Thanks, Diana! Yes, it's exciting. I have several of the 100 that were planted blooming now. Looks pretty...Now the rest of the yard..Guess I'll be doing yard work tomorrow.


I would love for you to leave me a comment...Rebecca
