Our Daffodils --Part II


If you missed yesterday's post, click HERE. Today, I'll show you six more of this year's Daffodils in our yard. Above is a neat little pastel Daffodil called EASTER BONNET. Below are more.





Love this reddish trumpet; This is DECOY.





We think this one is COPPER QUEEN because of where it is in our flowerbed... BUT--it's not exactly the color that it's supposed to be. Don't know if our soil may have changed the color --but the 'real' Copper Queen is supposed to be more orange--all over... Who knows!!!!





This one is similar to Decoy, except the trumpet is more of an apricot color. This Daffodil is new this year and her name is MON CHERIE.




LAS VEGAS




This one is named TAHITI. It is similar to Replete (in yesterday's post) --except the color is different. Isn't it pretty??

Hope you enjoyed seeing our Daffodils. There are two more which have not bloomed yet (Romance and Pink Radiance). IF they bloom, I'll show them at another time.

If you liked the Daffodils, I'll bet you will enjoy seeing our Tulips also..... Of course that will be another post.

Hugs,

Catherine said...

Lovely!

diane said...

Just amazing the colours and variety. you are very organised to know what you planted where and remember all the names. I'm hopeless at that,

Blissitydoodah said...

You're killin' me Betsy!
Did they come from Breck's?

Roses and Lilacs said...

I wish I had such a nice selection. I'm adding new ones each year so soon I will have a variety. I was outside at 6am today snapping photos of mine. I get home so late there is never enough light to get pictures.

Mon Cherie is definitely my favorite of them all. They are all beautiful though. Great pictures. Thanks for the tour of your daffodils.

Lola said...

They are all lovely Betsy. Maybe one day I will be able to have some of the ones like yours. I only have 2 & I don't know their names.

Busy Bee Suz said...

Linda (PA_shutterbug) said...

Lovely daffodils, all of them! I liked most the MON CHERIE daffodil from today's post.

Small City Scenes said...

Beautiful daffodils, Betsy. Do you have King Alfred? I like that one because it gets so big and tall. MB

Coffee with Cathy said...

Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful. Thank you so much for bringing spring to my computer screen.

Tricia @ Bluff Area Daily said...

Very pretty! I like the Tahiti, it seems more tropical than the rest, just like it's name! LoL!

Dar said...

Aren't these all so lovely. Daffodils are one thing the deer seem to leave alone. Yours are so gorgeous.
Have a Grand Day

Daisy said...

I had no idea there were so many different kinds of these, Betsy. They are all so pretty!

Pam said...

Mon Cherie is my favorite of this group!

Glenda said...

I vote for Mon Cherie, too! Love the layered look and the color. But they are all so beautiful . . . each like a ray of sunshine - which is also a good description of your posts!

Bird Girl said...

You just have one big daffodil party in that yard of yours!

Regina said...

Gorgeous and delightful!
Thank you for sharing Betsy.

Unseen Rajasthan said...

This is so beautiful and Fantastic !!What beautiful colors and amazing shots !!

Ginny said...

I've been looking forward to this post! I must say that Tahiti is my favorite! Again, because it's a little different from the shape of a daffodil and I love the cheery color! I'm hoping to be a much better flower identifier now that I read your blog. I do have several flower guide books, but they are so tedious to thumb through when you are trying to identify a flower of shrub. I'm also waiting for an update on the whippersnapper chickadee homewreckers. I saw your comment on someone else's blog that there's now some grass in the nest!

Denise said...

Just one word for your variety of daffodils Betsy, glorious!!! Can't wait to see your tulips. Have a great day :)

Big Dude said...

Betsy - Great pics, it's like looking thru a bulb catelog.

Kay said...

Love these.

Karin said...

My compassion for the plain, ordinary daffodil is certainly growing! How can she compete with all these amazing beauties???? But on the other hand, maybe she feels like a grandmother, totally proud of her bevy of beauties of younger offspring! LOL Loved all your pics!

Cheryl said...

I loved the Mon Cheri and Tahiti! Of course all the daffodils were beautiful but the two of them caught my eye.

Becca's Dirt said...

Betsy - you've been holding out on us. They are all stunning especially the Mon Cheri.

A Brit in Tennessee said...

You never cease to amaze me with your pictures!
Such beauty everywhere, I would be hard-pressed to leave home :)
I like them all, it's like choosing a favorite child :)
Hugs,
Jo

Sandra said...

they are all beautiful, but my vote goes to las vegas on this post. it could hold it's head up on any stage in that glittery city.

Snap said...

Wowzer!!!!!!!!!

Pam said...

They are all my favorites, Betsy. I do miss not have them in my yard but its to hot to grow them here.

JOE TODD said...

I'm a little Daffy over Daffodils.. Hope all is well down South

SquirrelQueen said...

More Daffodils, each more beautiful than the last. How do you keep track of all the names? However you do it I am impressed.

Love Mon Cherie!

~mel said...

very VERY PRETTY!!! Dear Hubby told me today that I have to plant daffodils this fall so we have some bloomers next spring. I informed him that I've planted them before; but the squirrels or something keep getting my bulbs on me. I guess I'll just have to keep on trying until I succeed ... like you!!

wncmountainliving said...

I have most of those in my yard but didn't know their names as they were already here. Love the Easter Bonent! Ours are past bloom now and it is sad - I had vases of daffodils for weeks!

Marydon Ford said...

C'mon tulips! Love the daffodils, Betsy ...

Have a beautiful week.
TTFN ~ Hugs, Marydon

Carletta said...

All so distinct in their coloring and all beautiful!
Sad to say mine have been, bloomed and have left the garden. :)

The Retired One said...

All gorgeous!!

Julie said...

Mon Cheri is my fav of this group!!! All are just gorgeous!!!

Leedra said...

Yesterday and today's post are both so pretty. Isn't it nice to have so many different types of daffodils. All the better since they are blooming before most other flowers.

Mary said...

I like the Easter Bonnet and Tahiti! They are all pretty!

Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti said...
