Narcissus Blooms (AKA Daffodil or Jonquil)

The Daffodils / Narcissus Blooms were gorgeous this year and they continue to bloom even now (mid April).

Regardless of what you call them (Daffodil, Jonquil, or Narcissus), these little beauties return each spring and are some of the earliest and most colorful blooms in the late winter or early spring. Our Narcissus blooms started appearing in February.

Here is a beautiful bloom (white with a gorgeous orange center) that I particularly like. This was some of the first of our Daffodils to bloom and some are still blooming.

The history (& legend) of the Narcissus is very interesting and relates to the Greek gods of legend. The entire plant (but especially the bulb) is very toxic (poisonous) to small animals and even humans. See more at the Britannia website here.
