Late and cheating, besides: Bloomday in Buffalo
Nonetheless, I've very proud of this Grand Soleil d'Or narcissus, which I planted and gave as a gift at a holiday party. I have no idea of when it actually bloomed, but I do know these take much longer than the average paperwhites—maybe even eight weeks. Anyway, the recipient didn't send me this image until yesterday so: voila!
Of course, I could display some miserable pictures of the few half-petrified snowdrops I've seen outside, or maybe some even more pathetic and very unpromising hellebore buds. I don't think so.
I'm so impressed by these that next year I may keep some around for myself. They justify their difficulty.
