Welcome to my new daff.  This tiny little daffodil has up to five golden yellow, heavily scented flowers per stem. The petals are slightly recurved and twisted.  Growing to about 25cm it likes moist well-drained soil in a sunny spot.  It is on my table as I write this and is filling my nose with its distinct daffodil scent.  How could I resist.  The price of a fancy coffee, it is worth every penny.  It came from Potten End, Little Heath Farm Nursery.

The thing that intrigued me about this daff was the leaves.  The leaves rather resemble those of Allium sphaerocephalon.  If I had not seen the colour coming through, let alone the trumpet shape, I would have guessed, wrongly, that it was an Allium. Without the onion scent, it would have been a puzzle.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I was going to save this for Wordless Wednesday but it is such a grey day here I thought I would share it today and spread a little colour.

Have a good weekend. Dorris.
