In a Vase, on Monday – first daffs

I know, I’m a bit late to the game today; then again so are these daffs! On top of that, I’m not even showing the vase! Don’t worry, it’s not terribly exciting. Clear glass. Small. Holds water. 🙂

All right, here’s the tip of the vase. Once again, with my spotty kitchen window in the background.

I don’t know the variety of these Narcissus – I planted them in the back field soon after we purchased this property, in a protected spot, and they’re always the first to open. And, if I’m being completely honest – they’re not entirely open yet. Outside, anyway. I cut these yesterday morning – it was a gorgeous sunny warmish day – and they finished opening this afternoon, as the sunshine spilled through our warm west facing windows.

There’s a lot of smaller blooms in my Canadian garden right now – Crocuses, Chianodoxia, Scilla – and the Tete-a-Tete daffs have just started today, but if you’d like to see a larger variety of cut flowers, in real vases, please visit Cathy’s site – Rambling in the Garden.


  1. I can understand your excitement in wanting to pick some straight away and, let’s face it, it is better to pick them before they are fully opened anyway! Are they a ‘standrad’ height, or are they miniatures like the T a T? They will certainly be injecting some spring sunshine into your long cold winter 🙂
