NEW SPRING FLOWERS - DAFFODILS

Daffodils are among my favorites. They are always the precursors of spring along with crocuses and snow drops. Here are some spring flower pictures, taken this spring, to brighten your day.

 Crocus







These pictures were taken mostly in Central Park. Many are 9/11 daffodils, from bulbs given to NYC by Holland after the 9/11 tragedy. A fitting living memorial. Are daffodils a favorite with you, too? Comments are always welcome.

I always wondered if Jonquils and Daffodils were the same since Jonquils were what grew in abundance where I lived in Oklahoma. So, I looked them up a moment ago: "Jonquils and Daffodils differ in flower colour where Jonquils have creamy to soft yellow colour while Daffodils have yellow colour. Jonquils also have a fragrant smell while Daffodils lack it." Now I know.
