Narcissus, Another Early Spring Flower
Narcissus seemed to bloom almost overnight. Once the crocus begin to bloom, many more flowers follow in rapid succession, this being one of them.
I have friends in the Northeast still enduring the very long and very snowy 2014-2015 winter. Some have noted they especially like to see yellow flowers. Well, these aren’t exactly yellow, but are kind of in the yellow family. These are especially for you. We have had a glorious winter in the Southwest Desert, at least in the high desert of New Mexico. But, our snowpack is not good. Come summer, we’ll be dealing with wild fires, while friends in the Northeast will be enjoying lush plant growth.
These seemed to come into bloom all of a sudden. Not unexpectedly sudden, only that one day they were not blooming, and the next day so many were. These do not last long, but are very much appreciated for the short time they are. I have chosen to show you a bud, fully open blooms, and a close up of a fully open bloom.
