#AYearInFlowers Week 17

Written by

The weather has steadily been getting warmer and the daffodils are finally on their way out. I spent last weekend trying to capture every last drop of their beauty with the camera since it’ll be another year before I get to see them again. This years variety trial was a huge success and we discovered at least a dozen new gems that we’ll be adding to our bulb offering this fall.

When it comes to bouquets, I normally use a mix of flowers and foliage, but in early spring when the daffodils are blooming, there is rarely anything else in the garden to pick, so I end up displaying them en mass instead. I think it might be my favorite way to feature these beauties anyway!

This bouquet includes Narcissus/Daffodil: ‘Precious,’ ‘Apricot Whirl,’ ‘Cum Laude,’ ‘Belle Song,’ ‘Coral Light,’ ‘Extravaganza,’ ‘Delnashaugh,’ ‘Cromacolor’ and ‘Crystal Mountain’ in one of my treasured Frances Palmer vases.

#AYearInFlowers is a community-driven project to share what is blooming in your garden or in your area.

Each week on the Floret Blog I’m sharing a bouquet or snippets from my garden and also featuring a few community submissions from Facebook and Instagram. Information on how to participate is posted below. I’d love to see what is in bloom near you!
