Welcome reader to my blog - a mixture of this and that. Now that we are living in a retirement community in downtown Columbia, MD my personal gardening activities are somewhat curtailed. I still enjoy visiting gardens, reading, watching wildlife on my walks, traveling, and occasional food commentary. Please leave a comment if you feel inspired to do so. I read every one of them.

Daffodils

All the daffodils we planted have bloomed though they took their turns coming out. One thing I noticed for all of them is that they faced the same way - south. So the ones we have along the edge of the glen face away from the house. How strange to be looking at the backs of all these flowers. And is it the sun's orientation that decides which way they face? A conundrum.
These are the ones that bloomed first. Our bedroom window looks out on them but again we only see the backs of the blooms.

I think they face where they get the most sun. Ours face east because that's what side of the house they are on.
