Daffodil Meme

I am a fan of variations on a theme.

I must mention that the cups are called coronas. (These are not contagious.)

They have divisions named for their cup type or lack of one or petal curvature or blooms per stem… (Look Knight, there’s twee!)

A daffodil by another name, is a Narcissus.

I found a ’60 Days of Daffodils’ by Simple Pleasures that has many varieties.

This one with pink cups was a surprise mixed in a pack of others.
