{Fragrant Narcissus Obdam}

One of our most favorite Heirloom Narcissus are the Obdam. They are also fully double and a dream in a vase...
Lovely cream with yellow and I love the greenish petals!
They really make a lovely vase and are so fragrant for enjoying indoors.
You clearly see the hint of green...
Let me show you these greenish petals more up close.
Such a beauty; don't you agree?
They should stay like that for weeks, why are flowers wilting so quickly?
The Obdam is really multi-colored!
Wish I could reproduce the fragrance for you...
Here is where they live, in our wood garden, across the center bridge.
This year they did yield twice a nice filled vase but some years, the buds just dry up and never open...
Do you have some fragrant double heirloom Narcissus like these Obdam?

  2. Cara Mariette, anche nel mio giardino i narcisi sono fioriti, ma si tratta di quelli a fiore semplice, meno appariscenti dei tuoi ma altrettanto belli. Siccome sono tra i primi a colorare di giallo il prato accolgo sempre volentieri il loro benvenuto alla primavera.

      Indeed, their fragrance is heavenly and especially in the evening it sends wafts of perfume through the home whenever you move. Whatever daffodils you have, they are such welcome flowers for spring; just enjoy!
      Wishing you and yours also a lovely Easter!

    1. Beste Marianne,
      Ja dank je en dat is nog een oud vaasje uit Nederland van Keraflor uit Reuver, Limburg die destijds door Steenbok werden verkocht in 3 maten. Steenbok handelt nog steeds in tegels en marmer. Heb in de jaren 80 veel van hun geïmporteerd, ze hadden hier in Atlanta een filiaal totdat de dollar koers wijzigde.
      Liefs,

      Thank you, we surely did enjoy these and ours did not make it to the Easter season either. Very tricky to manage that; depending on the weather.
      We sure enjoy this time of the year, with a blue sky and sunshine it feels just great. Very festive time of the year. You will reach that next week in Greece.
      Sending you hugs and blessings,

      Thank you for your visit and glad you came to enjoy these beauties.
      Sometimes we don't get any of these Obdam narcissus to bloom either, just got lucky this year.
      Wishing you a lovely Easter in Melbourne, Australia and happy family time.

      Yes, this sure is a WOW variety of heirloom narcissus. Anything with such a hint of green looks lovely, like white roses that have a greenish tint. A very old vase from my previous imports from The Netherlands that I did in the 80s for my business. They came in a small; medium and large size.
      Happy Easter weekend to you both!

  18. Hoi Mariette,
    Zo zo.., jij zit goed in de bloemen. Erg mooi hoor. En zo te zien staan er buiten nog meer. Prachtig!!

    1. Beste Marco,
      Ja, dit jaar was het een treffer met deze práchtige dubbele heirloom narcissen en ze geuren ook heerlijk. Maar ze hebben het niet tot Pasen gered, dat is al heel toevallig om ook dat te redden. Daar zijn foto's goed voor. Ja, die banner is inderdaad van een heel grappig duo. Mijn Vader vertelde vroeger altijd verhaaltjes over konijntjes die op brommertjes rond reden bij het land wat wij hadden. Wij genóten van die verhalen en járen later kom ik deze hier dus tegen. Mooie herinneringen!
      Ook lieve groetjes en fijne Paasdagen nog.

  23. Een prachtige volle bloem Mariette. Mooi vaasje ook. Zo'n groot veld met narcissen is ook een prachtig gezicht. Ik had een aantal bakjes met witte narcissen binnen staan (weet de naam niet meer). Nu ze uitgebloeid zijn hebben we ze in de tuin (lees tuintje) geplant, dat doen we elk jaar, dan hebben we er volgend jaar weer plezier van. Fijne paasdagen, lieve groet

    1. Beste Willy,
      Ja, hier op zo'n groot landgoed verdwijnt heel wat aan bollen en plantgoed maar in een klein tuintje is het zichtbaarder en narcissen vermeerderen zich ook. Zo halen we de mooie lente ook in huis met een geurende vaas van zulke ouderwetse variëteiten!
      Ook een fijn Paasweekend en liefs,
      Mariette
