St. Patrick’s Day.

Well, were my St. Patrick’s Day Narcissus open on time……what do you think?

Yes, they were!

This is the first time they have been open on March 17th for a good number of years.

Last year they didn’t open until April 1st.

I think our mild, damp winter has had a lot to do with St. Patrick’s prompt opening.

St. Patrick covered in dew drops at 6am this morning, such a beautiful flower.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day to you and my narcissus!

    Such good timing!

  3. Cathy says:

    A lovely daffodil and great timing too!

    • Pauline says:

      I agree Cathy, it is a lovely daffodil, the colour is a gentle yellow with paler petals and sepals which goes so well with all the other spring bulbs.

      Thanks Jessica, it wasn’t until I had downloaded the pictures, that I realised that the flowers were covered in dew drops.

    Interesting that you’ve had a mild winter whereas here in Italy it has been the coldest and longest for 13 years. Maybe also the driest so I’m not sure what that will do to the plants this year. Happy St. Patrick’s day to you too. Lovely daffodl.

      Further north and east in the country have had it much worse than us Christina, with more sub zero temperatures and snow, we just have it wet!

    My favorite flower! And my favorite season! I can’t wait for all the colors to come!

    • Pauline says:

      Glad you like them Cecilia, it is my favourite season too! Colours are starting here with lots of other bulbs and perennials, such a wonderful time of year.

    gorgeous photos of gorgeous flowers. You’re impressively organized, Pauline, to keep track of the dates they flower. My idea was to use the blog for this kind of thing, but it hasn’t worked out like that at all.

    • Pauline says:

      Thanks Catmint, glad you like them. I’m not really organised I’m afraid, it’s just that I know when St. Patrick’s Day is, so I feel his daffodil should be in flower then, or why give it that name! Looking back at the few previous years blogs in March soon tells me if he was on time then or not.
