First daffodils of the year



In spite of Storm Dennis, I have a row of miniature daffodils flowering in front of the shed. I can see them from the house and very cheerful they look but I think that, like the snowdrops, they’re best appreciated indoors, where I can really look at them. I planted various varieties in that narrow bed years ago and they’re amazing. It’s the place I plant out seedling foxgloves when they’re big enough and when transplanting, I often disturb the daffodil bulbs. I just push them back into the soil with my finger and up they come again the next year. So much pleasure from an inexpensive bag of dry bulbs.
