Double Narcissus

Double Narcissus

Again I am taking you back to the Spring for a little bright sunshine. This narcissus, planted under the magnolia tree, came up much later than the others, a solo flower that comes as a twin. Perhaps it flowers a little late as it has less light on it, with all of the magnolia blossoms above it, shading it. This one reminds us of a favourite cat, Rupert, who used to love to lie on the path nearby and sun himself. Every time this blooms we think of him and remember.

  1. How smart of the narcissus to wait until the magnificent magnolia had finished it’s show…but then a narcissus wouldn’t want to share the limelight now would he? Anyway, I’m glad he chose this time to shine. He is spectacular and justly deserves all the attention he can get. Yes, and like your dear Rupie, he is singularly enchanting and easily adored. Thank you, Ellie, for selecting this double narcissus and giving me a double thrill, along with the remembrance of Rupert.

    1. Yes, he is a generous beauty and stands out the better as his arrival is timed after they have all died back. Yes, we actually call it Rupert’s narcissus, planted where it is. If you know what I mean. I have a post about him somewhere in the drafts…. Just haven’t posted it yet, though I have worked on it again lately… Thanks again, Janet.

  2. What a lovely flower Ellie double at that. The color of the design the shapes they just continue to amaze you as you look at them. Thanks for sharing and hope you have a lovely day.
