So Many Daffodils


So far, we have 13 different varieties of DAFFODILS in our yard this year. I wanted to show you a close-up of each variety ---so George used his macro lens and took some great photos for us. Hope you enjoy our Daff's.... I'll show 7 today and 6 tomorrow. Above is one called BRECK'S COLOSSAL. Below are more!




This beauty is one of our new Daffodils this year named PINK CHARM.




CHROMACOLOR




REPLETE (1995 Daffodil of the Year)




Another new one this year: ACCENT




FORTISSIMO




MOUNT HOOD

Hope you like our Daffodils... There are so many different varieties out there ---and you know me!!! I want them ALL!!!! ha ..... I'll show you more tomorrow.

Hope you had a great weekend. We certainly did---and we love this Spring weather!!!!

Hugs,

What a great problem to have!!

Beth said...

Those are all so pretty, Betsy! For some reason, our daffodils haven't done well this year, so I'm really enjoying seeing yours. Thank you!

Valerie said...

Larry and I were just talking about how we should plant more daffodils next year. The tulips are like candy for the deer and we seldom get some that actually bloom and stay for a while - but the daffodils are so wonderful this time of year - and yellow is such a SUNNY color!!

BTW - I think that bird singing over at Intelligent Expressions was a pine siskin. I photo-ed him last year and that was what we came up with.

Have a great day and week!

Pam said...

I think Accent is my favorite!

I didn't realise there were so many different varieties. They are all beautiful but I think I like the yellow ones best. Congrats to George for great macro shots.

The accent's beautiful, but WOW for the Replete! I'd never have even known it was a daffodil, it almost looks like some kind of rose! I'm loving this and can't wait till tomorrow!! I'm learning all these daffodils and getting to see them; and I had no idea there were so many!

Harriet said...

Love the Daffodils. They always remind me of my sweet mother-in-law, she give me some many years ago.

Daffodils are my favorite spring flower; I never knew there were so many varieties.

I didn't know there were so many varieties - and they are all so, so beautiful! If I had to pick my favorite, I think it would be the Pink Charm.

We, too, are enjoying these beautiful spring days full of sunshine, bird songs, and blooming flowers!

I keep telling Vol Fan that we need a Volunteer flower bed - only orange or white flowers. Chromocolor would fit in nicely:)

I can't pick a favorite. I want them all. I like the way that you put the name by each bloom. Much easier to make the connection.
Had a wonderful weekend. Spent a day with GGS's.

All so gorgeous! I like the Replete one! Lucky you to be surrounded by all this beauty.

carolina nana said...

Daffodils are so pretty,they seem to be so cheerful,probably because they are the first color after winter. I surely hope our winter weather is behind us but I'm still nervous!!
Have a blessed day. Marilyn

Snowbird said...

I love Florida but I do miss spring and all it's beauty especially the flowers. Gorgeous pictures.

SquirrelQueen said...

My goodness, I didn't know there were so many varieties of daffodils. Replete is definitely my favorite just because it is so unusual but I also love Mount Hood. It is as white as the top of the big Mount Hood.
