Earlicheer Daffodil

This delicate and fragrant daffodil isn't the earliest to flower in the Moosey spring garden, but it is always eagerly awaited. I plant it alongside paths so it can be fully appreciated by the discerning gardening nose.

 I love these beautiful spring bulbs.

I also have several patches of lemon Earlicheer, which are just as fragrant. Why is it that their beautiful smell can't ever be properly captured by the perfume industry? I'd love to find such a fragrance to remind me of spring.

I'm not sure whether these bulbs are rightly called daffodils - or even if the name 'Earlicheer' is used outside New Zealand. Some serious research is required!
