First Daffodil

Click on photo to enlarge

Most of our yard (aside from the vegetable garden & chicken yard) is planted in locally native drought-tolerant plants, but at the base of the hop pagoda, and along the fence behind it, we have space reserved for a few more traditional garden flowers. There you'll find a few daffodils, tulips, iris, oriental poppies, and also some hollyhocks back along the fence. Daffodils have been blooming in Big Bear gardens for weeks but ours aren't in full sun so they're a bit later, this being the first one. Several tulips are ready to open as well and I'm hoping the fantastic oriental poppies will be flowering in time for the Xeriscape Garden Tour on June 10th.

Your daffodil is very yellow & pretty. My flowers are in bloom and tonight you can see your breath outside and the temp is dropping a little below 40ยบ...I'm not liking that too well. We have already planted our tomato plants, so I guess we'll have to start over.

My yard never gets extra water from us...only the rainfall...and that's it.

I love them also, and all of the different varieties of them. Mine have been long gone for some time now. Its so interesting to see what blooms when in different parts of the world

It's only fitting, as hops are divine. :) I need to make me one of those!

Nice yellow. Mine are starting to wither.
