Golden Trumpets

Dsc06760My first "Yellow Trumpet" daffodils opened today.  I've seen others open around the neighborhood for about a week or so, but I think I planted mine in a spot that takes a bit longer to warm up. 

When I planted them (here), I also started some indoor bulbs for forcing.  Not for the first time, it didn't go so well.  The little daffodils were all tall and stringy, and the hyacinth never bloomed at all.

Maybe bulbs just really need to live outside.
