    Wow - wonderful daffodils Keith -
    my favourites are the double white ones and the tiny yellow with orange middle on the first photo.
    What about about a very close photo from the filled white daffodils?

    And please a nose full of the flavour, too.(y)

    All of these are Jonquils. Difficult to take photos at the moment very overcast and windy trying to hold flower where possible and camera for a close up.

    All these arrived today

    Dahlias to be planted early Nov
    I intend to plant them very close together to make it appear as if its only one plant.

    The 6 lilies are packed in a heavy soil and in the fridge until ready to plant (within one week I hope) weather permitting.
    Only cost $14 for 6 lilies

    Marg would call that the English Cottage garden. It certainly has plenty of colour. Our Spring garden is always packed with colour and different every year plants multiply and new seedlings start growing.

    That's pretty much it, colourful perennials at the front and shrubs at the back as a backdrop and to create interest during the winter. I think it's my default setting.
    I love Gertrude Jekyll's, and Christopher Lloyd's style of gardening.

    We follow the Marg style its called "Find a suitable space and plant it". Once established and the seeds spread we never know what will pop up. When you have the same plant in different colours, the new seedlings colours can surprise you.
