In a Vase on Monday – Daffodils

Well it was only a matter of time before daffodils were the subject of the In a Vase on Monday post.  Many of these were blown over in the winds at the end of last week and some had to be rescued from under shrubs and perennials which have grown larger than I expected! I have had to make a note to dig up the bulbs and move them into a more open location.

I think the selection demonstrates just how diverse narcissus are.  I prefer the lighter coloured flowers as I find the brighter yellows a bit brash.

Thanks to Cathy for hosting this weekly meme.

    I like the paler ones too. My favourite is Thalia – I think you may have a few of these in your vase.

    Oh what a motley collection you have in your vase, Helen – they look so effective in their abundance. Thnak you for sharing ps I am with you about the ‘brash’ yellows 🙂

    These look beautiful! What sort are the really small ones?

    1. Helen Johnstone says:

      That’s a good question, I have no idea and I can’t find the label despite rummage around the base of the plant

  4. There’s more variety with daffodils now than when I was a child!

    1. Helen Johnstone says:

      Possibly although a lot of old varieties are coming back too

  5. Hello,

    I enjoyed your beautiful arrangement this week and I agree with you about the stark yellow, although everything in moderation I suppose.

    Although I don’t have a post up this week on what is in my own vase, last week I posted on my own daffodils. You’ll be pleased to see they are not all yellow!
