Nothing says spring like daffodils and we do love our daffodils in the northern part of the country. I bet Carolyn at Sweet Home and Garden Chicago has seen all of the half million daffodils blooming at the Chicago Botanic Garden. I leave this afternoon for Belfast to see all their daffodils and enjoy The Spring Flower Show activities. I kid you, of course.....going to our grandson's flag football game.

These daffodils have become the favorites in my yard.


  1. Love the daffodils and now that we've got 80+ weather, we've jump right to summer.

  2. Our daffodils finished weeks ago, but it is still nice to see them blooming for you.

    Always Growing

  3. Donna, I LOVE all your daffs. I did not know what tete tete meant - I love learning all that botanical stuff!

    Your post makes me wish I planted more bulbs - I get lazy in the fall.... sort of run out of energy by then. Please post these again in September... maybe that will motivate me.

    Your new pix are so cute. Nice to put a face with your blog. Enjoy the sun!

  4. These pictures are so wonderful. Daffodils are always the "hello" of spring. Beautiful!
