Springtime for Daffodils, (and other bulbs).

Springtime is definitely here. The perennials in the herbaceous borders are budding up or beginning to poke above ground level. There is even a little warmth in the noonday sun and the daffodils are eager to get into the act.

Daffodils can I think be just a bit brash, particularly the tall yellow only varieties. I much prefer miniature daffodils. They provide a welcome burst of colour to a rockery and their height means that they are not prone to being broken or blown over by strong winds. Methinks that I will consult Mr Blom's autumn catalogue in due course and select a small white flowering specimen for planting in the rockery which surrounds the well.
