daffodils arrive

I have had daffodils in vases for a week now, but I cheated–I brought some inside still just budded, and they quickly opened. But this morning the first ones bloomed outside. We braved the wind to walk around the yard admiring them. Didn’t have my camera with me, but I’ll get some pictures soon. Here’s a photo from last year!

So clearly we are later than last year–but last year we had that freak hot spell in late March. I’m glad things are blooming a bit later this year. When I have my Mother’s Day garden party on May 11 there will be lots of daffodils to enjoy!
