A much needed day of sunshine gave me a chance to pick some of my favourite historic cultivars from the garden. I love these graceful old daffodils.

I'm delighted that Ian Young, the Bulb Logger, Bulb Despot and all-round bulb super-hero, has consented to having one of my daffs named after him. I thought he would choose this beauty, knowing his fondness for x susannae types. Just like the man himself, the daff is tall, slim and purer than the driven snow!
One or two gleaming white bell-shaped flowers per 25cm stem, it makes a beautiful pot subject but should also do well outside.

Mercy! Now Anne has honoured Ian with a fab daff!  In spite of any supposed bias, I reckon both 'our' narcissus are fantastic. We are greatly honoured, Anne, thank you!!
