The daffodils seem to be peaking now. More of the Tahiti daffodils have opened.
I really like them now that they are fully open.
Here’s a disappointment:
Geranium daffodils. They are heirlooms from 1930. The cups are supposed to be orange.
Never a disappointment, Actaea daffodils.
Developed in the 1920’s, this is the flower that turned me on to heirloom flowers.
The Thalia daffodils along the Ugly Green Fence are doing much better this year than past years.
The Fortissimo daffodils just keep getting better.
As do the iris Bucharica.
I raked out that bed twice already! Where are the leaves coming from?
My favorite Red Riding Hood tulips are back.
But only the original ones. The ones I planted last fall still haven’t made up their minds if they are going to grace us with their presence or not.
I love unintended combinations that turn out particularly well. Birds probably planted this lunaria in front of my house.
It looks well with the Darwin hybrid tulips that come back year after year and the grape hyacinths that multiply every year.
Even my neighbor’s trees are beautiful at this time of year before they have completely leafed out and shading my yard.
