Right now, here in Stuttgart, a few daffodils have poked up from our front yard. I will probably pick them. I don’t usually like Narcissus in the landscape in early spring — the bright yellow is too much, too soon. But, like those in the photo above, they look really nice in a vase.
There are also some fat cultivated Dutch hyacinths by our front door. They’re going to get the chop too.
In the fall, for next March and early April, I want to plant snowdrops and snake’s head fritillarias.
