Yellow Things

Ah! The weekend of yellow things arrived. Many of my daffodils are open, and some migrating birds returned.

This is the Poet's Narcissus, in front of a lot of King Alfred daffodils.

This is "Chromacolor" -- its cup is more peach than yellow, and its petals are pale cream. It provides a good contrast to all the yellow daffs I have.

This beauty is Double Tahiti.

And this is one of my favorite yellows in the garden -- they always seem to come back while the forsythia and daffodils are in bloom.

Also planted this weekend: a viburnum "snowball" bush, a white single Rose of Sharon, and a new rose! I'll post pictures as they flower.
