It always leaves me wishing that I had started planting them years ago. Then I really would be able to talk about 'a host, of golden daffodils.'
Not all of them are golden. This one has a peachy center and is called Daffodil chromacolor.
I have always preferred smaller flowering plants and these small flowered daffs fit perfectly into the rockery in the sunken garden.
There are more to come; later flowering varieties with multiple heads and wonderful fragrance.
With the unseasonable warmth of the last few days I don't think they will be far behind.
'And then my heart with pleasure fills,
And dances with the daffodils.'
