Bulbarella's Daffodilathon

Mostly ones you haven't seen yet. I think.



































































































































A bit like how whale watchers identify whales by the markings on their flukes.







































































And the show will go on.......

There are more? Loving all of these. Especially the white ones with the...rays.

I don't know the daffodil inflorescence vocabulary. (Please do not teach me.)

Will you be digging any of these up and, ahem, passing them along? Because I have a list.

I have been eyeing them thinking I need to pick some out that I like and mark them. In the fall when it is time to dig nothing is there. While this outrageous diversity is astounding, I would prefer a little more coherence in my own garden.

Legally they are not mine to dig. The true test of passalong plants hasn't ocurred yet and how far they may be passed is another issue. How long is your list?

Christopher, although it is not with the rules, I dig mine NOW, when I can see which is which and where they need to go. It doesn't seem to bother them at all. They will flop over after being replanted, but bounce back next year. Bulbarella has excellent taste in daffodils, BTW.

As much as I'd love to have you dig some daffs for me, what I really want is... uh... could you just finish that cottage and let me live there.

I agree with the "dig now" theory...my mom does it all the time. Daffs get a littled miffed, but they forget quickly.

Spring is a good time to transplant things. Once they are done blooming who cares if they droop.

Hank once the cottage is done you can come visit me and stay a spell if you like.
