I did some gardening this morning and cut a bouquet of April flowers. As our garden has only a small portion that is fenced against deer, I only have a few tulips planted, but many narcissi. Narcissus is one of the few plants that deer never, ever eat. Over the years I have bought many types when our neighbourhood does its annual bulb order with Van Noort, and I especially love the fragrant ones that are best appreciated on the dining room table while I read and blog and sometimes even eat.
|Double narcissus "Flowerdrift"|
|Rock garden narcissus "Quail" (such an exquisite fragrance)|
|Rock garden narcissus "Thalia" (very lovely with a delicate perfume)|
|Cupped narcissus "Carlton" (fragrance is not very strong)|
|Cupped narcissus "Salome" (unscented)|
|Poetaz narcissus "Yellow Cheerfulness" (light fresh scent)|
