I haven't been down by the big bird feeder in quite some time. Looking at the calendar today, I realized that we are running out of January. I also realized that the end of January normally means that the "Early Sensation" daffodils are in full bloom.
This isn't the prettiest stand of daffodils. They were planted next to a bunch of small fir trees which have grown immensely over the last 10 years. The "Early Sensations" now grow in dense shade and thus are leggy and bloom sparingly. But still they try their best each year. And who can not appreciate a burst of bright yellow at the end of January?
