Spring is in the air

Narcissus 'Van Sion'With a few warmer days everything in the garden is on the move.  Beautiful bright red shoots of peonies are popping up in the borders, magnolia buds are bulging but the star of the show is still the vast area of daffodils, anemones, fritillaries and squills in the 3 acres of wild meadow.  This double narcissus ‘Van Sion’ is one of the oldest recognized cultivars and may have been growing here for about 400 years.
