The week has been warm and sunny up here in the north.
Westward (Narcissus ‘Westward’) started to bloom in the balcony.
For once I stayed calm and only bought few new daffodils this spring. Usually I end up buying many more.
We have been promised sunny days for the next week.
The daffodils I have bought this year are starting to bloom in the balcony. Double Gold Medal (Narcissus ‘Double Gold Medal’) was something I simply could not resist.
It will find its way to the summer cottage once it has bloomed and hopefully it will bloom again next year, if it makes through the winter.
It will still take few more weeks before the daffodils start to bloom up here in the north.
Tete-a-Tete Daffodil (Narcissus Tete-a-Tete) is always the first one to open its flowers.
Bought one for the balcony and once it has bloomed will take it to the summer cottage and replant it. It will bloom nicely next year as well.
Enjoying a warm day in a park. Restaurants are still closed and takeaways are the only option.
Already miss eating in a proper restaurant and not somewhere outside. Though enjoying the good weather.
Daffodil Thalia (Narcissus ‘Thalia’) finally started to bloom. It has a uniquely shaped blooms and the white in them is exceptionally bright.
The summer is finally arriving to the north. We have had two beautiful and warmish days in a row. Nature is starting to get its green color.
Cold weather is always good for the daffodils. They simply bloom longer.
Pink Charm (Narcissus‘Pink Charm’) is at its best and seems to enjoy the weather as do I.
Still have few daffodils that have not opened. It has been a cooler period up here in the north which is good for daffodils. The ones that have started to bloom simply bloom longer when the weather is colder.
Monal (Narcissus’Monal’) started to open its flowers. The colors are bright and it sure stands up.
One more week to go and then I am able to spend a week in the summer cottage. Cannot wait for that.
Kiss Me (Narcissus ‘Kiss Me’) is a beautiful light yellow daffodil.
It is getting warmer and during the nights we have stayed above the freezing point. All this means that the plants are waking up and trees starting to get their leaves.
Summer is finally arriving and hopefully it will be a beautiful one.
Daffodil Ice King (Narcissus ’Ice King’) just started to bloom and it is a very interesting one.
It is a new purchase I made few weeks ago. Actually never seen this variety before.
Daffodils are many and it seems that I just keep on buying more. This one goes to the summer cottage and hopefully it will bloom again next year.
It still is cold up here in the north. Last night we went down to -3 degrees Celsius and during the day we only have about 5 degrees.
I managed to come to the summer cottage for a long weekend. This is a good time for gardening though it is so cold that you end up spending half your time heating the cottage.
Tête-à-tête (Narcissus Tête-à-tête) is the first daffodil to bloom and the others have not yet started. It is a bit pity that during the winter we usually loose half of them because they are not the hardest ones.
