Jonquils and Daffodils

The heat of this past week was hard on the Jonquils and Daffodils.  Many of mine have dried and the show is over.  I have a few late varieties that have yet to bloom, so I’m lucky that there are more blooms to come.

This is one of Mama’s.  She has a friend who used to work at Monticello and this bulb came from one of the gardens there.


This is also Mama’s.  Look at the color variation on the edges of the center of the bloom.


Mama is going to mark all of these varieties so that she’ll have a few of each at her new home.


My yard is full of bulbs planted by the previous owner or given to me by Mama.  I must have gotten this one from Mama.


This one is just about all white.




This variety is quite small.


Scenes from my yard:







This has been such a pretty spring.  I’m enjoying every second of it.


  1. Hey Paula. Everytime I say that I want to sing out “I want to marry you”. You probably on heard that your whole life, well maybe not, your pretty young.

    Anyway I just wanted to thank you for sharing the beautiful blooms. It’s amazing how different daffodils can look. You’re so lucky to have them. If you ever want to sell me a couple of bulbs let me know.

    Hugs…Tracy ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Paula, they are gorgeous! Be sure to get a few before your Mama leaves that house- they’re just wonderful!

  3. Beautiful!! Love the close-up shots. ๐Ÿ™‚ I’d love to see a post about what to do AFTER they die!! I have them in my front flower bed and they are so pretty until all the blooms shrivel up…like right now. When I tie them down, they just look, well…tied down. I can’t just cut them down b/c they have to have the stems for next year’s nourishment, right?

  4. I think all the snow cover had a definite effect on the quality and showiness of the plants that made it over our winter and are blooming now. I still have a few that are not responding. One is my lavender that Andre told me to go ahead and cut back I think it is DEAD!
    My daffodils were outstanding this year. I cut more to bring into the house and gave more bouquets away than ever in the 20 years we’ve lived here.
    Enjoy the rest of your vacation!

  5. They are just beautiful! Love the up close photos of the flowers and the yard scenes. Enjoy the weather!

  6. Girl you are one amazing photographer! I need lessons. I never knew what a Jonquil was until I moved into my neighborhood 10 years ago. All of the streets are named after flowers!
