Daffodils blooming

Remember all the daffodil bulbs I planted last fall?

I really wasn't sure if they would come up this spring. I really thought the squirrels would have dug them up and ate them.

Turns out squirrels are grossed out by the taste of daffodil bulbs and won't eat them.

So i had quite a show of daffodils blooming in front of the house. Standard daffodils and fancy ones.

It now looks a little strange that I planted them in two perfectly straight rows but they still look great!


  1. I love the variety you planted! They're gorgeous. Those pinker varieties look a lot pinker than the ones I put in. Mahvelous!

    I was so happy to hear that no one likes to eat daffodils. This was the first year we planted them and every year our tulips and crocuses get snacked on mercilessly by bunnies, squirrels, and deer. At least we have some flowers!

  2. My main gardening rule is to plant only things that are poisonous and things squirrels don't like. I's the only thing that leaves me with any blooms at all.
