That's a delightful bunch, Fermi.  I've given up on daffodils -- the narcissus bulb fly (two types) finds every bulb in my garden.  <sigh>

They are lovely, Fermi! There you see, you can grow plants I can't! I have tried several times but they disappear quickly.

Such nice little beauties.....

A month long blooming daffodil would be stupendous here!  Our springs are so short.

 

  On the other hand, with climate change, our falls are getting longer.

Well, Rick, it did have a flower open a month earlier and a few in between but not a huge number!

This is the second flower on the Narcissus bulbocodium - didn't notice till it fully opened that it had 12 petals!

12-petalled Narcissus bulbocodium

On the way to work I went past clumps of white flowers which turned out to be an old hybrid known as "Twin sisters" Narcissus x medioluteus (according to Daffseek - I think I knew it originally as x biflorus)

My first Narcissus of the 2013/14 season and very early too. Narcissus Nylon Group grown from seed sown September 2009 and flowering for the first time. Must make a note and see if it's as early next year.

We have had to give up on Narcissus in the gardens. Virtually all the ones planted in 2012 were eaten out by Narcissus Bulb Fly. I discovered this when I had to move a clump to a new location earlier this autumn. It is a shame, since the deer don't like them. Thankfully, the deer haven't bothered our tulips or Hostas yet!
