Springtime in Austin
Daffodils and narcisscus hold special significance of re- awakening and renewal. No matter where we live, they say it is Spring. This Narcisscus Campernelle, above, is one that does well in warm climates and it has come back year after year for me here in Austin.
"Grand Primo" is another heirloom that does not need cold temperatures to bloom; which it does in my garden as early as January. The flowers are quite small- no bigger than a quarter and very fragant. Just gotta love those happy little faces saying "Let the gardening begin".
