And cyclamineus - first time I have had a patch.  I hope they come up again next year, as previously once seen, never again

Great front shot, Hans.

I'll have to move my cyclamineous once I get my shady bed made

Here are some Narcissus bought last year but I think some are wrong when I cross reference them with Daffseek http://www.daffseek.com/ I'm a little concerned about the old term miniature which is now out of date

Armin in the garden are Trena, cyclamineous, Mite, Mitzy, Tete .., Jet Fire, many in bud and many more in pots all flowering now. Like my Crocus the small Narcissus sit outside until the flower opens. I then bring them in under glass

And over here it is planting time, not flowering time!  ;D

Our autumn Horticultural Society Show was over the weekend (Dahlias, Roses, Veggies, plus the usual cut flowers and floral art etc) and the Doffodil Society had a raffle.  I was lucky enough to win second prize, so there are now 14 new varieties to be potted (more than that in the actual prize, but some were duplicates of what I already own).  Daffseek shows there should be some interesting flowers in spring.  8)
Cheers.
