A Host Of Golden Daffodils!

Here's our little fence garden!

I hope you can stand a few more daffodil pictures. I've taken so many and I wanted to show you a small selection. I really had a great time with the camera and had trouble restraining myself :)


King Alfred Daffodils

These daffs with the white outer petals are so pretty against the solid yellows. The blue flowers are scilla sibirica.

Here you can see more of the garden, with some lavender crocus in the foreground. Toby is in the background, sitting beneath the tray feeder, dreaming of catching some birds. He only dreams, he's too well fed to do the actual work!

A view from the other side of the same garden. The sky was so pretty that day, with puffy white clouds against the blue.

Too many daffodils? Never. You can never have too many flowers of any kind! They are really lovely.

I never get tired of looking at your pretty daffs. Also, you have given me a different view of NY State...I was one of those idiots (when I started looking at your blog)that thought NY state was the same as NY city....How wrong was I...I had no idea that NY had countryside. Thanks for showing me the beautiful side of NY.

Wonderful daffodils, Kerri. In the next autumn I will plant a lot of new one, all in the same colour. I have a lot, but never enaugh.

Kerri,
I never tire of looking at your gorgeous photos. I must admit that I never used to think of NY as an area that had such beauty! (I just pictured it as all big city) I think blogging really helps give one a true insight into an area!
Thanks again for sharing your garden with us!
((hugs))

It's funny because I always had the opposite problem -- imagining New York City had anything to do with New York state. The one seemed so remote from the other. Being not too far from Niagara Falls (on the Canadian side), I am familiar with Western New York. It's a long way from NYC. ;-)

Oh my goodness, Kerri, I didn't realize that this is a gardening blog! lol! As Homer Simpson would say, "DOH!!" The last time I was here you didn't have any gardening photos posted, and I guess I didn't look closely enough at your links. In any event, please disregard that part about gardening blogs I wrote to you in my last email. :) What beautiful daffodils you've grown, and lovely photographs of them! I don't think I've ever seen so many daffodils together in one place, and I love the splash of blue thrown in among them. Very, very nice!
