I used to turn up my nose at trumpet daffodils. There was something about that cone-shaped corona and unapologetic yellow that struck me as... undignified. Far more appealing to me were the pale tepals and dainty skirt of N. poeticus.
But as I have done with a lot of things over the last couple of years, I revised my opinion. Just look at these, the first few daffodils to blossom in my garden this year. On a slightly gloomy, overcast afternoon, when the sun was already setting behind a wall of spruce, they seemed to glow from within. That colour isn't garish - it's a triumphant declaration of spring!
