The hot wind knocked the stuffing out of most of our very very late flowering daffodils but the wind has finally gone and there is still a few daffodils flowering.
The end of the season is marked by our Quickstep seedlings, late flowering bulbocodiums, late flowering N jonquilla and our late flowering NTT.

Graham,

Nice!!  I particularly like those late flowering NTT.  Beautiful.  Tricollet is rather cool (Sorry Lesley), as is Bright Angel.  I still have bulbocodiums flowering here plus the very last of the other daffs.  Also more buds emerging on 'Galligaskins', which means a third flush for the season spread over a few months.  I can check when they first started flowering but this is extremely unusual in my garden.  There are 4 buds emerging from only the couple of bulbs I have, so it is quite a significant flush comparatively.

Great pics Graham!!
Cheers.

My own N. b. obesus is still a couple of weeks away, though a good potful and for the first time in years, the leaves are fully deep green instead of with unsightly yellow tips. I have my fingers crossed though lest I speak too soon.

N. triandrus ssp triandrus is starting and may be worth a pic in a few days or a week.
