But I can’t help but smile when I see them on the kitchen table – especially as it’s snowing and blowing like crazy outside my window! Are Narcissus a favourite with you? Do you grow them in your garden? Share this:FacebookTwitterEmailPinterestPrintLike this:Like Loading... Related

Thanks for the Sunshine in a Vase. We had today beautiful sunshine and while I was shopping for for some tools, Grace bought potting soil and seeds; it must be springtime around the corner, hopefully it does not miss our corner. J J
Thanks, Grandpa! The weather really isn’t co-operating much, is it? But it will come around eventually! I hope you and Grace have a wonderful day!
What a gorgeous photograph! I don’t grow them. i just buy them at the grocery store. They really are an economical flower for such as burst of yellow!
Thank you! Plenty of pizzazz on a dime – a perfect combination! 🙂
I’ve done the exact same thing, and it makes the house so much cheerier.
Much needed at this time of year!
I loved the peach and white ones actually. I never had much luck with them. I planted lots of tulips and they all did well but daffodils were a bust. I think our squirrels loved them too.
I planted some miniature white daffodils a couple of years ago but still haven’t seen hide nor hair of them…I didn’t think the squirrels would get them because they’re poisonous, but I have no idea what has happened to them. I like the peach ones as well, so pretty. 🙂
Ooh, I needed that sunshine just now! Thanks! It’s damp and grey here today. I do like daffodils, and am looking forward to a few flowering soon… they always seem later than I expect. Stay warm! 😀
Thank you! Happy First Day of Spring! Hope you’re having a bit more sunshine there today….
Thank you for adding some color to my grey and dull day..I don’t grow them myself , but won’t be long hopefully till they start to appear in the fields again 🙂
I would love to see a field of daffodils…must be so lovely! I love it when the buffalo beans bloom in late spring and the prairies are covered in yellow blooms, so I guess that’s a fairly close approximation. Nothing like yellow flowers to cheer a person up! 🙂
Daffodils are so cheerful and bright – perfect idea to get some for inside on a cold snowy day!
I’m surprised at how long this particular bunch has lasted…going on six days now and they’re just starting to fade a little now. Usually they’re gone much sooner than that. I think I will pick up some more stems this afternoon – we’re in for more bad weather tomorrow! 🙂
I am with you…we had 8 inches and more due the rest of the week…if it all comes we will hit 18 ft this winter…I think we barely had 5 last winter…
Oh my goodness, that’s a ridiculous amount of snow! You must be good and truly tired of it by now! We keep getting snowfall, but the accumulations are not nearly so large. It seems that we’ll just have to hold on a little longer for the good weather to arrive….
We are starting to grow Narcissus now in our flower/vegetable garden. We grow a lot more flowers than veggies, but that’s how we like it. We don’t like to be tied down to a really big garden in the summer because we like to get out and go places and do things. Narcissus is a beautiful looking flower and no wonder you want to smile at them! This should brighten anyone’s cloudy day! It certainly gave me a smile. And we were under partially cloudy weather here today. Still more to come, but March did come in like a lamb, so it generally has to go out like a lion, and that I think is what it is truly going to do. Have a good Easter!
I agree, a big garden can be a ton of work – and summer is so short, you don’t always want to be out there! You want to take the kids out and enjoy everything!
I saw on the news this morning that you’re expecting another 20 cm of snow – I don’t imagine you had enough time to dig out from the last storm so this is going to be nasty. Take it easy out there!
I hope you have a wonderful Easter as well!
“Sunshine in a vase” is a perfect title! My daffodils are almost fully open; however, I think they must have sensed the hailstorm coming that we had today… Maybe it is safe for them now?

Oh, I do hope your garden didn’t receive any damage from the storm. Hopefully the sun will shine and your daffodils will open today! 🙂
