Last of the daffodils?


I don't know what the variety is called by these double-headed blooms are so small--about 2 inches in diameter--and delicate. 
The ones below, on the other hand, are the biggest and hardiest in the yard!

I have been trying to grow peonies for several years now, without success--well, moderate success: two of the four plants I started with are still alive!
Last year I got, I think, one bloom.
This year, one of the plants has about six buds on it--I'm beside myself with anticipation. But I just realized they are probably going to bloom in the coming week, while I'll be away visiting my brother.
Told my niece she should cut any blooms and enjoy them.

Love your daffodils. Spring here is unfolding with great delicacy. Cold, cold
weather, lots of rain. We have daffodils coming into bloom, but they're not in any hurry.

Have fun with your brother. And I so love your work.

These daffodils are so pretty. I've never attempted to paint them.. I leave that to you. Peonies are one of my favorites and I've 'attempted' those quite a few times... Have a great visit with your brother..
