I haven't seen any daffodils around here yet. The grass is getting mowing height though. That could be interesting with the ground still saturated from all the rain we've been getting.

Nice, Taxy!

We've had daffodils for a couple weeks. Mine have been smushed, bashed and mangled by pouring rain, winds and hail.

The Daffs are nice! Seeing your chives reminded of Mom and Dad's Chive hedge in Laramie. They had a regular hedge and right in front of it Dad planted chives, it was a beautiful row of purple and lavender color for most of the summer.

Ohh, lovely. I can hardly wait for mine. Mine are dwarf daffy's. What a great nickname. They are sort of clowny, daffy flowers, that I love. And that bright happy yellow.

I have minis and species daffs too, they all come up at different times. Love 'em!

I really should plant some more daff bulbs. They are such a good investment.

The lamium are going crazy. I bought one years ago and it nearly didn't survive. Then I got a few from my M-I-L and it seemed to revive the ones I already had. They have pink flowers and pale leaves, the new ones have dark green & white leaves with purple flowers. When I bought the first one, it was called a "purple dragon". It had purple flowers back then. I think they are in the mint family. They have the right shape of leaves and square stems.
