Spring has sprung on our mountain!

Spring has finally sprung on our mountain!

When we moved here to our newest cabin, we had no idea what was planted. It was so great to see the daffodils come up the first spring we were here.

Last year, the daffodils were OK, but not nearly as prolific or beautiful as they are this year. And we had no idea that we had four different kinds of heirloom daffodils.

It started a few weeks ago when the blooms pushed their way up.

Then the first ones, with pale yellow leaves and dark centers started blooming

Then the temps were to dip way below freezing, so Mum went out and cut all the ones that wouldn't be protected by an outer 'shell.' They made for a beautiful couple of bouquets.

Then a week later, more started popping up. Here is a close up of the all dark yellow ones.

And the white with dark centers.

And then what do you know? We didn't see these at all the last two years, doubles!

Tonight it's supposed to dip down below freezing again, so guess we'll get to enjoy them inside again! Hope you are enjoying some spring where you are!


  1. So pretty! My daffodils have already come and gone. :( They usually only last about a week or two here in Texas.

  2. We love the cheerful daffies and we can't wait for them to bloom in our yard, Johann! The different varieties are so pretty ☺

    Love ya lots♥
