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.

Narcissus

The spring is nearly here! Two more months and you can actually do things in the garden!

To manage the excruciating wait I have been visiting shops to ease my pain. On one of those trips I bought a narcissus which turned out to be a beautiful choice.

My challenge was that it is too worm inside and still too cold outside for narcissus. I needed to figure out a place in between. I ended up squeezing the flower between the window glasses and to my big surprise it worked!

The narcissus has been blooming two weeks and it even seems to enjoy the place. Must go and shop for some moreā€¦
