A good year for daffodils



Last year, many of my daffodils came up blind, which I couldn’t understand. This year there are hundreds of them out all over the garden and buds promising more. I don’t understand that, either and suppose it’s something to do with weather conditions. I’ve broken my golden rule of taking flower pictures in dull weather (always better) but you get the general idea of profusion, even though the photo shows only one small corner.



I’m so lucky that primroses grow like weeds here. Like the daffodils, they’re naturalised everywhere. Both daffodils and primroses look especially lovely when glowing palely at dusk. You can see that I'm not a tidy gardener. Who cares when you get effects like this? Note all the celandines which will soon be adding more yellow to the scene.
