  3. I had forgotten how huge the trumpets are on those K A Daffodils. So different from many of the more modern varieties.

  8. How exciting, spring is springing up! I know we'll still have some cold and yucky stuff (maybe even more than we've had so far!) but now that the daffodils have started, I'm so much happier. I love your last photo, especially (the one from the reverse). I have a bunch of early trumpets that I keep going back and forth thinking are either King Alfred or Carlton, but now I'm pretty sure they're not K.A., because the cups are not so long and elegant as yours. Are King Alfred daffodils fragrant at all?
