The daffs are blooming well. Its been the right kind of spring in NYC as far as plants should be concerned. Rainy days alternating with sunny ones. Never too warm -spending flowers as fast as they come, wilting young leaves, and growing legs.

Do the daffodils get the respect they deserve? Often in mass plantings that highlight their color over their form and twelve inches above the ground, I don't think people get up close to them very often. These below smell wonderful. Get up close.

Small cups, pale yellow-medium cups, slightly deeper yellow

All the following are the same...

But in front of the dwarf spirea, a world of difference
