New seedling, This is perhaps one of our most unusual seasons. I suppose one says that nearly every year. Now we have a mixture of autumn daffodils and those that flower in mid-winter in Southern California. Despite the rest of the state getting good rains, our area of Southern California is still behind in total precipitation so far. Nevertheless interesting new seedlings are showing flower buds already.

 

These normally flower in early November.

A row of Tequila Sunrise. These are also normally in flower in November. The drought has not affected them.

    Very nice, Harold.  I have a pot full of foliage on Tequila Sunrise, but not a bud in sight.  Nice to see your photos.

    Hi Harold,

    You realize that now that you have flowers blooming in our spring time you could enter shows in both hemispheres in the same year.
