I seldom can pass on windfalls. Usually by windfalls we mean the fruit from trees, which is picked over and if processed quickly can be turned into pies or jam or chutneys.
Here the windfall in question is the one bloom from the one bulb of Narcissus Replete, planted last December in memory of my friend Penny. The strong relentless winds were just too much for this bloom. It is large with ruffled petals, hardly looking like the standard shape of narcissus, and unlike many other daffodils I seem to be able to tolerate the gentle smell. The leaves are from the Epimedium x versicolor Sulphureum. I cut off all the leaves at the weekend, and managed to stop some leaves from being blown across the garden.
Hasn't the bird song been wonderful this spring? At least it has been in my garden. This little bird is a whistle which I have had for years and years.
Cathy has a very pretty white and blue arrangement featuring white narcissi...do go and see what she and other have to offer.
