That's Much Better . . .

Hooray! Pineapple Prince is one of those daffodils that changes color as the flowers mature.

Aren’t they gorgeous?

The first of the new double daffodils opened today.

That’s Golden Beauty. Very aptly named.

Here’s something unexpected. I was terribly disappointed last year when the Fortissimo daffodils turned out to be plain old yellow instead of yellow petals surrounding dramatic orange trumpets.

Apparently they get better with age.

They are just starting to open and showing much darker trumpets this year. Fingers crossed that they will live up to their hype.

These are really nice. I can't wait to see all mine open for the first time ever.
