Seems a bit cheeky this - but Spring has snuck into November. 

Narcissi are the more petite and prettily scented relatives of the noisy daffs who trumpet the end of Winter sometime after February. Although I'm always pleased to see daffodils, I like them a little less than their dainty cousins.

Some know the Narcissi as 'Jonquil' - a beautiful word that describes a particular shade of yellow.  

And for those who like the idea but perhaps not the colour, there is a type called 'Paper Whites' which are as delicate and pale as their name suggests.

  1. I'd forgotten that they were jonquils; such a sweet, old-fashioned word.
