Narcissus on the First Day of Spring

Narcissus, first day of Spring, 2014

This daffodil — most likely Narcissus x golden dawn — has happily revealed its first flowers on this first day of Spring.

This clump of daffodils began as 3 or 4 bulbs planted in 2006; so these bulbs have not only survived the drought, heat, and the winter of 2014, but they have proliferated greatly!

We have very few daffodils that tolerate the summer heat during dormancy. I’m certainly glad to see these gems in the perennial bed!
