My daffodils brilliant and abundant this year, and I am grateful. I planted them many years ago and for awhile they returned each spring. They have been a bit sparse in the past few years. They never seemed to spread and multiple/naturalize as I expected.
This year they are so vibrant and they seem to have multiplied some. There is even one lone daffodil trimuphantly blooming at the edge of the road, really in gravel not even dirt.
So they have been hiding out under the ground, perhaps gathering strength and waiting for conditions to be right in order to bloom again. I'm so happy they are here.
Here's hoping things are blooming in your part of the world!
