March 17th. St. Patrick’s on time.

Just a quick little post. Narcissus St. Patrick’s Day has opened on time this year, if anything he was a little early, which doesn’t often happen. Last year he was 2 weeks late but this year the warm weather we had in February must have made him get a move on.

In the back border in front of the woodland.

It is such a beautiful daffodil, a really lovely soft yellow.

You might have gathered, I love it!

More clumps in the woodland.

The snakeshead fritillaries will soon take over from St. Patrick, although would he recognize them as there aren’t any snakes in Ireland!

It’s nice to know that he can arrive on time. Happy St. Patrick’s Day everyone!

    A handsome daffodil. Glad he bloomed on time this year!

      He certainly is Peter, usually he is late, but not this year! All the heat we had in February must have had an influence on his flowering don’t you think?

    I really can understand why you love St Patrick’s Day, such a lovely soft yellow colour. And he makes a stunning combination with the fritillaries.

    • Pauline says:

      He is the same colour as the primroses Denise, a lovely shade of yellow. I think the fritillaries look better with a bit of yellow beside them, too much purple is depressing!

    That is a perfect gentle subtle yellow.

    A big clump of fritillaries are so pretty – mine seem to be still just in ones and twos. Definitely something to look forward too 😊

    • Pauline says:

      I think most of my fritillaries are flowering now. must do a post about them soon. Mine are jumping the path and coming up in different areas, which means they don’t need damp soil all the time. I think there was a wind blowing when I sprinkled the seed one year, so maybe I could spread them even further.
