    Thank you Clay, it is a beautiful little flower and scented.  It was such a delight to walk into the back yard expecting to see only columbines and lilacs, but to see a new daffodil blooming.  I thought for sure they were all done this year.

    Hi Rose,

    It is Mid to Late here. I didn’t expect it to be so late in your area. My nose is not sensitive to daffodils so I didn’t know it was scented. I suppose that is a bonus.
