Ian Tyler’s photo of Rijnveld’s Early Sensation (RES) was very timely for me.  On Friday (27th Dec) I photographed an early daffodil in flower in my mother’s garden. (Co Armagh, N Ireland).  It usually flowers in late December or early January.  After looking at Ian’s photo and the photos in daffseek I’m pretty sure this early flower is RES.  I also see from daffseek that it is fertile so I will save some pollen from it and cross it with some early seedlings I have. 
  Photo attached.
    Seasons greetings and happy new year to everyone.
