Daffodil

Some of the daffodils are still blooming. Most are already gone but not all.

They did give a good show this year and I am happy that I have managed to find so many different varieties over the years.

Daffodils are very easy to grow requiring almost nothing special. Just good soil and enough water and they will bloom each year.

Tete-a-tete

It has been a beautiful day up here in the north. The daffodils are starting to bloom and Tete-a-tetes are the first ones.

The others will follow soon and the buds are nearly ready to open. Though, there will be a change in the weather and we are expecting to have very cold days ahead with some snowfall.

Luckily daffodils are very hardy and cold weather just makes them bloom longer. I on the other hand am running around the garden trying to get as many things as possible done before the bad weather.

Tete a Tete

It has been a beautiful day up here in the north. I am in the summer cottage and have been planting all day long.

Tete a Tetes have started to bloom and if it continues to be this warm other daffodils will follow soon.

Tete a Tetes are a bit too sensitive to cold and do not always make it up here. Luckily we had plenty of snow during the winter and it made all the difference.

Daffodil

Enjoying the long Easter weekend and the beautiful weather we have. Days are now bright and full of light because of the snow cover and increasing day light time.

Have had time to take long walks and see friends. To cook good food and enjoy peaceful dinners.

Inside the Easter flowers are blooming. Daffodils are my favorites during this time of the year. Still more than a month before we can see any of them outside.

This spring seems to be all about the daffodils. Each time I go to a store or shop I manage to buy one pot more.

I have been trying to collect different varieties and there are so many available this year.

My plan is to take them all to the summer cottage after the snow is gone. This way I can enjoy them during the forth coming years as well.

Still two more months to go before the spring flowers start to bloom outside. Cannot wait that long! I am getting impatient!

Indoors the firs daffodils are starting to bloom. They brighten my mood and bring me joy.

The weather up here in the north has been grey with plenty of rain. Not something we are used to at this time of the year. Usually we have snow and sunshine but no such luck this time.

Well hope this means that spring will come early! Or am I just wishing this to be true?

PS. Daffodils last over a month if you have the possibility to keep them outside in the cool temperature.
