Grace could you tell the wind was blowing and it was 25 degrees?

Morning, Christopher. I wanted to pop in the congratulate you on the silver medal over a GGW. I think we all know your photos are winners!

I love your photos, congrats on your GGW photo contest win. I hope you don't mind if I gloat a bit, but my Snowdrops are farther along than yours. Nyahh, nyahh. (Hey, it was 5F here this morning, I need something to gloat about.)

Hey, Chris, I've been reading/looking wayback in your blog at the daffodil clumps. How many did your Mom put in a group?

Grace thanks for the nudge to enter that photo.

Lola it is interesting how changing the angle of view of things I take pictures of regularly changes the mood.

Thanks Darla.

Thanks TandT

MMGD congrats on your win too. I'll have to see your snowdrops to see if they are really ahead of mine. Today's picture of mine coming up.

Sallysmom I can not say for 100% sure, but it is my distinct impression Bulbarella is rather frugal with the number of daffodil bulbs planted per hole even when dividing and spreading a clump that will give her 50 to 100 bulbs. I would think 3 bulbs per hole is the max and more often it could just be one big one. She may put a few more per hole when she buys a new variety for instant impact until they multiply enough to divide the clump. The idea is to spread them out far and wide. They multiply pretty fast and she is patient. Plus whenever she digs a clump up some are always left behind. I don't think she bothers anymore to even try to get them all. She just digs enough to put in the new places.
