Photos taken by Gay Klok in August and September, 1999
 
 


 
 
 


 
 

Specie Daffodils grow through the grass in many corners of the country garden.    These are the first to welcome the sunny, warmer days of early Spring
 
 


 
 

Ten days later this specie will join its cousin in glowing brightly through the grass
 


 
 
 

Also very early in the season, this unusual specie waves to all on its thin stalk when even a gentle wind is blowing
 
 


 
 

Here is just one corner filled with the gleaming lights.   One group, not planted by any human, has managed to escape the mob and now flowers outside the garden rail and post fence
 
 


 
 

The "Big Pond" in the background, the Daffies sprout up everywhere in the front garden
 
 


 
 

This tiny Daffodil, I think it is "February Gold" is growing in the so called rock garden.   That is a regular plant tag in front which will give you the size of these dainty things
 
 


 
 

And yet another form of old fashioned daffodils
 
 


 
 

The marvelous Michelia doltsopa joins the narcissus in perfuming the whole garden

The marvelous dinner plate sized blooms of Magnolia campbellii "Charles Ruffill"
 
 


 
 

That is Kees admiring the Magnolia and amazes at our tall it has grown in approx. eight years
 
 


 
 

And as the daffodils begin to fade, the cherries start bringing the bees into the garden and the forget-me-nots start to crawl everywhere
 
 


 
 

The wonderful blue Spring sky is reflected in the "Big Pond" pleasing the white Japonica,
