It's May 12th, 9:44 in the morning, and the temperature is 85 degrees and rapidly rising. There is no wind. What happened to spring?

To remind myself, here are pictures of the daffodils I grew this year. This is one of the few bulbs that reliably returns for me, so I'm hoping there will be more next year. For my own records, I tried to find all the tags for the new bulbs planted last year (Fall 2012).

Front garden - all of these returned from last year

Front garden 

Back garden - Narcissus 'Jetfire' (I think). These came up and bloomed first

Back garden Narcissus 'Ice Follies' - from the Huntington Plant sale

Narcissus 'Tahiti' - back garden, from Huntington

Narcissus 'Thalia' - I really liked this one. New in the back garden

Daffodil "Dutch Master" - I'm hoping they spread/multiply

Cersis blooms + daffodils = spring!
I'm hoping to add more daffodils this year, plus have them growing through the grasses. If all that works the way I want, next spring should be colorful!
