Narcissus and Warm Weather
The spring bulbs flowered all in a hurry from the warm weather we had early this week (81 degrees on Tuesday). I ran out today to take some pictures while they still look good. The guys at CapitalWeather.com think we'll have colder than average weather by the end of next week, however.
Anyhow, this is how some of my mid-season narcissus look today. It sure seems like they're early. Yes, I have a lot of pink ones. No, I don't know their names. Well not many anyway.
I've had all these for a long time, bought from many different sources. Below is a newer one whose name I do know, and I'm not sure what I think of it. It's called 'Lemon Glow'. I only bought a few because they were relatively expensive. The color is nice (more yellow than it looks here), but the flowers are huge, gargantuan, almost a caricature. Maybe I should move them to the back of the lot?
Update 7:13PM: The American Daffodil society has a database (with pictures) online - daffseek.org I think my topmost picture is 'Pink Charm'.
