Sometimes flowers merge.
This is especially true for the cutest daffodil in the world, Tete a Tete.
It tends to grow two flowers to a stem.
Sometimes the two get smashed together.
Sometimes they fuse together.
Occasionally they join into a Siamese-twin type of flower.
These are at first noticeable due to their extra petals and larger cup/corolla.
If you look closely, you will notice two pistils, the female part , in the center.
Also double the number of stamens(male parts) surrounding them.
If you cut these blooms open, you will see there are still two separate ovules in the double-sized ovary.
I have many daffodils.
Tall and short, yellow and white, white and white, orange and white and even some doubles.
I love them all, but one type always stands out the most and shines the brightest.
Even though it is the tiniest.
I love it that there are clusters of them all over my gardens.
My parents gave me a pot of them blooming one spring over two decades ago.
I have been dividing them and sharing them for over twenty years.
They are like little spots of sunshine.
Tete a Tete is the cutest daffodil in the world.
It is a miniature Narcissus. Its name comes from the fact that many stems have two flowers.
They look like they are having a little chat.
I would like to mention the unusual vase that belonged to a dear friend Beth.
It has a eight-parted, fluted, clear glass vase and a silver stand decorated with roses.
She would love to know that I have shared it on my blog.
