It seems your climate is very close to more southern countries! Unbelievable!

Are the bananas ripe also?

Hans, the viridiflorus is really stunning! :o
Good to know in Germany there is so much warm...to make bananas ripened! What about Coffea arabica, I know you like very much coffee! ;)

Congratulations for all this healthy Narcissi! and too late but happy birthday!

Here in Central Spain, Narcissus viridiflorus is in dormancy, I think this year it won't bloom ::)

Thanks Maggi, we celebrated it with 16years old Lagavulin and a good piece of chocolate cake... ;o)

Is there another way to celebrate! ::)

Starts to bloom N. tazzeta x serotinus.
It is a natural hybrid, sterile, 2-5 flowers on a stem.
The nicest thing is the perfum, a mix of both species.
