{Our Narcissus Cragford blooms EARLY!}


  • Already on January 13, I took this photo from our fragrant Narcissus Cragford.  
  • It sure is a daring daffodil for emerging this early. There are a few more varieties blooming right now but the weather is too dark and dreary for making any photos. 
  • The forecast is not much better for the coming days. We all long for those light days with some sunshine! But enjoy this early spring bode with me...
Plenty of rain and very mild weather, close to 20°C or 68°F is encouraging of course!

  1. Deares Mariette,
    I love the Narcissus flowers! It will take a few weeks, before we can see them in the gardens... You lucky woman :O)

    Have a great week,
    sending love and hugs,
    Claudia

  6. Dearest Mariette,

    You don't know how much joy your lovely flowers bring to me. All I have is white in my yard. Lots of snow. Spring is very far off I am afraid so I will have to take my spring joy from other bloggers! Ha!

    Thank you for sharing your flowers!

  12. Hallo Mariette,
    ist es denn schon wieder soweit? Wenn erstmal die Frühlingsblumen blühen, haben wir eine schwere Zeit geschafft und alles wird wieder leichter zu ertragen.
    Schöne Grüße, Johanna

  13. Ja, de narcissen zijn vroeg dit jaar! Zelfs hier in het hoge noorden zijn ze al uit de grond aan het komen en dat in januari. Wij hebben dit jaar bijna niets van sneeuw gehad.

    Bedankt voor je lieve en leuke reacties op mijn blog. Eindelijk werkt blogger weer zodat ik bij jullie ook een reactie kan plaatsen.

    Lieve groetjes,
    Sandy

  17. Beautiful narcissus! I had narcissus blooming every year at home back in Japan. The weather has been unusually mild...looks like they think it's spring already :-)

  18. Greetings, Mariette! It's been a while since I stopped by. There are just too many blogs out there to visit! LOL! But what a treat to visit here to see your lovely blooming flower. We've had over six inches of snow here this past weekend in my New England area, so this is a breath of fresh air to see this. Take care and hope you have been well!
    Best,
    Gloria
