  4. I love the last two images "Narcissus" are absolutely stunning, I admire your ability to create small works of art with a camera, you know, I've always been a bad photographer :)
    Congratulations Amy.

    1. I don't believe the "bad photographer" statement ;-) But I'm so glad you enjoyed the pictures! I hope to do a post on the little Narcissus; I am very happy some of them finally flowered. Thank you, Belén :)

  5. Narcissus canaliculatus are just delightful. I bet they have a lovely scent as well. The Viola is such a lovely contrast to all of the wonderful yellow and white flowers. Happy Easter!

    1. Your guess is right - Narcissus canaliculatus has a wonderful scent, though at about 5 inches tall, it takes some effort to get a good whiff of it ;-) Definitely a candidate for a raised bed! Hope you had a happy Easter :)
