More Jonquils

Pretty sure this is the last variety of Jonquil to flower in my garden. My sister Debbie only has the yellow variety and so when the bulbs have died back, I'll give her some of this one and the Excalibur variety.

There is just something about bulbs that to me, that make the spring season so exciting and welcoming when walking past gardens and these lovely flowers.

Oh yes Melissa that would be a wonderful idea to swap bulbs with you.

Do you want all 3 variets of mine? More than happy to share them if you do. All 3 varieties have been posted on my Blogg.

Showed Pat the "Spitfire" bulb flowers and he loved them.
