Drooping Daffodils

Drooping Daffodils

The rain will get them every time. But, not to worry, these daffodils almost always come back upright. Drier weather is predicted, for what that is worth, and we really need the rain anyway.

Daffodils have been blooming all around town, and I saw them in full bloom on a drive to the coast (60 miles away) 10 days ago. Mine are not quite at full bloom yet. We always have blooming daffodils on the first day of spring here. Though on warmer years, they are almost done, on that day. Still 10 days to go, but I don’t think that warm of weather is expected. Once the sun starts shining, the flowers bloom and die so fast. This is a positive note for overcast, 60 degree (F) days.

Cedar in Daffodils

Tree seedlings come up in my flower beds every year. For the past few years, I have transplanted them around the land. I do have one small tree that grew from a transplant maybe 10 years ago.
Yesterday, we dug up 4 baby cedars, and brought netted tree tubes to protect them from deer and other animals the first years of life. We also found a number of other transplants from previous years, Douglas firs and cedars. Just one dead tree was found.
The daffodil bulbs fare just fine even when something is dug up around them. I have separated daffodil bulbs in the early spring, but don’t suggest it as a rule.
