Nancy in Kay Co. OK and I love Winston Churchill Daffodills...............................

They're multi-florals, doubles, small, pale yellow with a darker yellow trumpet, and they look so pretty under the trees surrounded by the small white bulb called (around here anyway) Star of Bethlehem....my little live bouquets as I call them. But gosh I love bulbs! I have tons of tulips and irises that started blooming two weeks ago and will bloom on into June. I plant lots of bulbs under the trees because bulbs bloom long before the trees get their leaves but along with the trees' blooms when the weather cooperates. Red buds with daffodills and bright pink tulips beneath in front of a row of cedar trees...a perfect spot for prom photos. I've had kids call me and ask if they can come take photos in my front yard when everything blooms together like it's supposed to. Course, no one can see the back yard or they'd rather be back there. That's our haven. You walk around the side of the house and expect to see a plain old normal back yard and we've got this park back there...a water garden with reeds and water lillies, lots of trees, a brick path that curves and curls, an archway covered with clematis and jasmine and morning glories in all colors, roses here and there, lots of natural limestone edging the beds and building the water garden, a rustic well house at the top of the water garden with a cascading waterfall and lots of little ledges to hold little pots of somethings, blue flowering vinca covers the ground near the gate, the trees have grown into a huge arch, the deck with its little roof and the big rustic swing in the yard are all just so inviting. It's my favorite place in the world that back yard. And our ecosystem is so healthy...I've worked so hard on that...the birds feel safe and feed freely, frogs live in the water garden, dragonflies flit about all summer, ladybugs everywhere, butterflies...we have a very happy yard. We're pretty close to having it nearly carefree too. Each year we plant a few more perinials and soon we won't have much spring planting to do. I try to get self-seeders to do the work for us...like morning glories and cosmos and the like...But you didn't really ask for all this did you? Oh well, now you know one of my passions. Just get me started talking about my gardens and I'll go on and on for hours!
