Daffodils and More.....




I love spring in the mountains.  We are situated so that we have  the most northern of the southern plants plus the most southern of the northern plants which makes for double the color in spring.   It seems like every place you look there is a riot of flowers, shrubs and trees in bloom.

With almost an acre of woods and cleared area, my yard has many clumps of spring blooms still coming up and opening.  Right now I have several varieties of daffodils with more to come.




My favorite are the double daffodils and the pastel varieties which have yet to bloom. I also have phlox blossoming in shades of pinks and purple along with the Lenten roses really visible now. Our forsythia is not quite there yet even though I have seen more in bloom in town.  The red bud tree is coming along nicely and will be budding in a week or so.






Our neighbors' goats have been escaping almost daily but today the owners checked the fence thoroughly for holes and found the goats around the bend in another neighbor's pasture.  Hopefully this will keep them contained! What lovely spring flowers are coming up in your yard?

Ahhh, just looking at the photos makes me feel better. We still have too much snow and right now it's a messy snow/rain mix. No flowers for us in March this year, I think. So I'll content myself with others' photos until our own bloom next month! (Please, Goddess, let it be April...not May. LOL.)

Spring is all around isn't it. I'm in the foothills of NC and I'm so jazzed about the weekend weather and sunshine! Thanks for going Daffy!

those flowers means Easter to me. :) But Easter is late this year so there might be a mismatch.

Gorgeous daffodils! They're not a plant that grows in my part of the world so it's terrific to see your photos showing so many different types. Love that Hellebore too! Enjoy your Springtime.

Hi there this is my first time joining in with Monday Mosaic and I am now hopping around from Italy viewing all the wonderful blogs that join in. I just love this time of year with all the golden daffodils in bloom.

I love the daffodils! What kind of daffodil is the one in the middle mosaic, upper right hand side? It's so pretty!

Small City Scenes said...

I do love the Daffs. Our whole valley will be filled with them in a few days. Golden ground. MB

So beautiful, I love flowers but everytime I will try to plant, they would all die, maybe I am just lack of TLC. Mine is here
