Daffodil bed finished
I just this morning planted the last ca.300 daffodils and last 100 tulips. My daffodil bed is about 90 yds.x 2 yds. As you look across our hayfield from Urquart Rd, the first swath of daffodils is 250 'April Queen'- if you draw a line from the near left hand corner to a point on the far side about 1/3 of the way down the bed, the 'April Queen' are behind that line.Then parallel to that swath, is a 250 bulb swath of 'King Alfred II' and nest a similar swath of 'Flower Record'. The rest is solid "Yellow Daffodils for naturalizing" from van Bourgundien with 2 islands. The first is about 3/5 of the way downhill from the left side --there's a group of 50 'Suada'; then at the right side, near edge, there is a planting of 25 or 50 'Tropic Sunrise' running for about 15 feet.
