A single flower can give as much pleasure as the whole bunch!

Hi DP! Is that a daffodil? If it is I have never saw one with petals like it. Makes a pretty collage.
Did you get your auto save and posting problems worked out?

Thank you for sharing your sunshine!

I love daffodils, they do remind me of little suns. Are these the ones you brought home from the hunting camp?

Kim and Victoria said...

OH very, very, pretty! What could be nicer than daffodils in the spring?

Becca's Dirt said...

Already? Do you have daffs already?

I planted 55 late (Jan) but they are coming up.

Susie we didn't get any snow...but it has been pretty chilly! We have a few chilly days, and then a few warm days! What a tease!

Dirt Princess said...

Lona I did get my problem straightened out for now...hope it stays that way!

Yes it is a daffodil. I have not been able to locate the name of it. It is one I dug up from The Hunters great-grans place. Mrs. Brown named it April's Bloom after me! LOL! We couldn't find a name. I have emailed Old House Gardens, Petals From the Past, etc...and no one knows the exact name.

Catherine, yes this is one of them. The others are getting ready to bloom any day!

Becca all of mine are coming up. This particular one is the first to bloom. The other 6 types are about to bloom

Beautiful collage! I can't wait until they start popping up around here! I planted a bunch of daffodils in the fall so I'm keeping my fingers crossed that they come up.

That sweet little flower is a Campernelle narcissus. Campernelles are a cross of N. jonquilla and N. pseudonarcissus that first occured in the wild eons ago, and they've been a favorite in Southern gardens since colonial days. Many Campernelle bulbs open a flower or two that are imperfectly formed. They may have fewer than six petals, a petal may not separate from the cup, the cup may be incomplete, etc. This seems to happen most often when the bulbs are stressed or under-nourished in some way -- too crowded, not enough sun, rough weather, poor soil. You can see more typical Camperenelle blooms at our website: oldhousegardens.com/display.aspx?prod=DA07. Click on the small photo to get a bigger version that's easier to see. I hope this helps. I love your blog!
