Another one of Lawrence Trevanion's "Viri" series:
'Viristar' ('Hillstar' x 'Emerald Sea') 7WW - has been establishing itself over the last few years

Here is a seedling which has germinated between 2 rocks.
The seed parent is most likely one of Rod Barwick's "Little Detectives" either 'Smarple' or 'Kholmes'.
I would consider it to be a 10W-Y

A few more daffs in flower:
1) Graham Fleming's "David Adams" is looking better as it matures;
2) Rod Barwick's 'Snook'  - we got 3 from Graham in 2016
3) Two more from Graham this year: KB-M-6YW-2-13 & KB-M-6WW-5A-17
4) also new this year: KB-M-20-03

Hi
I suspect that I will have to rely on Fermi to showcase our bulbs this season. I am not meant to be working at the moment including doing daffodil things but I managed to get across to the daffodils today with my walking stick. There is a lot of things flowering at the moment. The white micro mini is exceptional if only because it is pure white.
The miniature 1Y-Y that is of good form on a short stem may not measure miniature. It may be slightly too big. I will need to measure it. The fact that it is on a very short stem won't make it miniature.
The 6W-Y is a superb exhibition quality miniature. It has a nicely overlapping perianth.
Fermi, David Adams is about right in terms of flowering time but the cyclamineus hybrids are about a month early. Have you got them in a position where they get northern sun all day?
We are in severe drought at the moment. It has been a very cold dry winter (drought means more severe frosts than normal). We had a rainfall total of 20mm recently and that has helped the daffodils a lot. We have done some supplementary watering just to help get us through this season.

Hope you are soon fully fit again, Graham.  The white micro-mini is a jewel!

Hi Graham,
sorry to hear that you've been in the wars - just remember to listen to your physio!
;D
Hi

Yikes! I knew I should've bought more of your bulbs! I hope I have enough of them to show ;D

Fermi, David Adams is about right in terms of flowering time but the cyclamineus hybrids are about a month early. Have you got them in a position where they get northern sun all day?

Yes, those daffs are on the north side of our little shade-house so get a lot of sun.
Here are a few more
1) one more of Graham's - Narcissus KB-M-32-2017
2) one of Lawrence T's "Winter Colours Collection" - a mix of hoop-petticoats - this is the first I've seen as the others were eaten off as they emerged!
3) Narcissus hispanicus which we got from Glenbrook Bulb Farm;
4) a seedling (?) N. bulbocodium type which has come up near 'Mitimoto'
5) more of the seedlings ex 'Julia Jane' which are a bit shorter than the ones shown earlier
cheers

More to come, Yann
 ;D
This is an unusual hoop petticoat daff with petals longer than the cup - can a Div 10 also be a Div 2? :-\
I think it might be a seedling of 'Ianmon' (another of Rod Barwick's Little Detective series) which is close by

Lovely little daffs, Graham. The 1W-W is very special. Great to see some daff flowers when I see bulbs every time I close my eyes  8) 8)
MINIONS! I need more minions!

Ooh, I love that seedling, Fermi! No idea how it would be classified, but I love the combination!

Hi Kelly,
I like it too - it's quite distinctive - just need to see if it is stable!
Here's a pic of its probable parent, 'Ianmon'
