I don't know how I missed these last year. In the patch of daffodils near the old house foundations is a smaller patch of double daffodils.

I love the way it's hard to tell how far they've opened because they're stuffed so full of yellowness. Yet they have more green than the plain yellow trumpets.

Spring: color!


  1. Those are SO pretty! I love daffodils and tulips - all the spring flowers - because they are so cheerful-looking. (or perhaps it's because just about anything with a little colour looks cheerful after a long, dark winter!)

  2. Love the double daffodils! I envy you for having flowers already! As Bag Lady says, anything flowery after winter is fantastic!

  3. "stuffed full of yellowness." Fabulous writing.

  4. I love how many of the early spring flowers are yellow: daffodils, forsythia, dandelions, and some of the crocuses. There aren't many yellow midsummer flowers, and then at the end of the season we get goldenrod, chrysanthemums, and black-eyed Susans.

    Daryl, I was so pleased when that phrase popped into my head as I stared at the daffodils. Sometimes my Muse is really on the job.

  5. Spring colours indeed! The mother dear got me some flowers for Easter- pink and yellow tulips. Love having them in my living room to brighten the place up.
