The First Daffodil of the Year

The first daffodils of the year have now opened. The "Early Sensation" planted down by the big bird-feeder are always our first variety to bloom each year. It is interesting to note that this variety was open by February 6th last year.

They are a "typical" daffodil with their bright yellow large trumpet. But I think that is just what we need at this time of year. A shocking splash of color against the sea of green and brown. We will now enjoy daffodils blooming for the next month and a half, but none are more anticipated than the first to open each year.
