Daffodils, Earliest Bloomers

We had such a good weather today and I was surprised how warm it was. I was thrilled to see that the Snow has almost completely melted on the Mountains, which is a sign that Spring is nearing. Not knowing how long the beautiful weather would last, I decided to tend to my plants and continue with the garden and yard clean up. As of today, my property is 85% weed free and what a difference it makes!

My beautiful Daffodils Tazetta also known as Paperwhite Narcissus are finally blooming and they are so lovely. The clusters of white petals and pale yellow cups with multiple blooms per stem are amazingly fragrant.

My miniature Tête-à-Tête Daffodils started blooming as well, producing deep golden-yellow flowers with slightly darker cups. I have always loved Daffodils, as they make beautiful cut flowers.

One of the many Daffodil Ice Follies bulbs I planted last Fall has finally bloomed with white petals and pale yellow ruffled cup. I thought I bought a bag of Ice King Double Daffodils, but it turned out to be Ice Follies.

I captured the beautiful Moon, almost 100% full. Ever so beautiful. Always so close, yet too far from our reach.

We are beginning to witness gorgeous sunsets here in the High Desert.

In a couple of weeks I will start building a Dry Creek Bed in the backyard. As of now, I will move forward with the clean up, stop and smell the roses whenever I can and enjoy our beautiful sunsets.

Wishing you Sunshine in your Garden!
