Fields of Gold

I visited my parents’ home today to pick daffodils (the daffodil window is only about a week long but definitely my favorite seasonal tradition). Much to my surprise, there are some incredible things happening in these 200-year-old daffodil beds. After tens of decades of cross-pollination and just a few years of bee-keeping (by my father), I am seeing species I’ve never seen in all my years of meticulous (and admittedly obsessive) harvesting.

  1. That is what happens when you sit out there and sniff those daffodils too long, you begin to see strange new things.!!
    Yes, they do have a huge bed, and I too have seen it a few years and love it.
