Narcissistic Narcissus

Foiled again. I had grand plans of a driveway lined with the beautiful Ice Follies Narcissus. I envisioned looking at their cheery faces when pulling up to the house. They, however, have other plans. All of their backs are turned to me, which leads me to believe that they are aptly named (or it could be due to the fact that the bed is south of the driveway, and they are oriented towards the sun).

A walk around to the other side of the bed, and all is forgiven. I really love this variety, none of the garden centres around town carry them, so I bought the bulbs at a hardware store. I will add more this fall, and plant more strategically.


  1. Very pretty! I noticed when we drove to Wpg last summer that all the fields of sunflowers were facing East. I didn't get to see them full on until we were driving back. It must be something about the morning sun.

  2. Rebecca girl I have these as well and mixed them with the large trumpet yellow daffs .. but I swear here is a conspiracey to always move their faces away from me when I try to take their picture ? haha
    Yes .. it is expensive initially to plant enough that they have impact .. so every year I try to add a few more but it is a slow process.
    You will have that affect though, so don't be discourage !
    Joy : )
