SO---March brought us some beautiful flowers (Crocuses, Hyacinths, and Daffodils to name a few). Our little scrawny Forsythia bloomed this year for the first time since we planted it several years ago, so we were happy. The Forsythia and the Red Buds were both gorgeous this month... March brought many SMILES to our faces while 'walking the yard'!!!!
The Daffodils in the area have been extremely pretty this year.. We have had a yard-full... That's one flower the deer don't seems to munch on---so most all of the homes in this area have been showing off Daffodils... By the way, I grew up calling them JONQUILS ---but nobody else seems to call them that these days, so I now call them Daffodils --even though there are many, many varieties (Jonquils, Narcissus, etc.)..
Today I will show you some of the different varieties of Daffodils in our yard this year. I used to know the names ---but there are so many similar ones (many with different names through the years, depending upon where you buy them) that it's hard to know the names these days. Also many places sell Daffodils in a collection --so no specific names may not be available. Most people are just happy seeing the different varieties --up close and personal!!! Hope you enjoy them. The picture at top is a variety that George brought inside for me to enjoy. Aren't they beautiful?

|We call these 'Dad Adams Daffodils' since he gave us so many for our yard... Some people call them Paperwhites. These will always be a favorite of ours --and we can think of Dad when they bloom. (Photo taken on 3/22/16)|

I am working on more upcoming posts from the yard --so stay tuned!!!!! We also made a trip to Biltmore recently (many of these are being used on my headers this month). AND--we have two short trips planned in April... Life is FUN!!!!
Hugs to all,
