Absolutely beautiful - hopefully it will multiply and not just survive.

This one is a bit of a mystery.
This daffodil came up after we had some earthworks done a few years ago.
The first time it flowered it looked like an ordinary, "standard" 2YY daffodil although the bulb itself would be well over 30 cm down! I presumed it was a bulb we missed when re-locating the dormant bulbs before the digger came through.
Last year however, the flower stem produced 2 florets!
This year there are 2 stems and 3 florets!
But what is it??

This was taken in May this year: Narcissus 'First Stanza' (N.elegans x 'Soleil D'Or').
Lawrence Trevanion has been raising these interesting tazetta hybrids and they are great in our part of Victoria.

Very pretty Fermi - and nice to be reminded of cooler days after the heatwave we have been suffering.

At the moment I am having to be careful not to disturb bulbs in the garden when attempting some remedial work after our June heatwave. Their leaves have withered away now and many of my carefully placed labels are being dislodged and tossed about by a family of resident Blackbirds, the parents frantically digging to find food for their third brood of young. They have amazingly strong beaks and can cause havoc in their attempts, gravel tossed aside and labels too so I am never quite sure where to replace them.

I know what you mean, Carole!
This is a green daffodil hybrid in flower today but no sign of a label  >:(

Amazingly beautiful Fermi - as green with envy as the Narcissus.
As I write this, with my early morning coffee in the garden, mother blackbird has brought her latest two fledglings to feed. I put food close to my chair on the terrace and they entertain me as I scan the news on my IPad. All part of the joys of gardening for me. :)

Good time to post this as Hilary has just posted a pic of a stamp featuring Narcissus tazetta!
This is Narcissus tazetta ssp iltalicus grown from seed sent to me by Betty Clark in New Zealand a few years ago. A fitting memory of a great gardener,

This is an unlabelled dwarf white hoop petticoat daffodil but not sure if it's a named variety or a seedling.
It was in flower in late June
