Forår i Doug's have i Pennsylvania

 

Photos are from Doug Florey, who we visited for the first time in June 2014.

Today he says, "We started planting daffodils en masse about 10 years ago, and each fall we put in a few hundred more.  Although I love some of the more exotic-looking ones, we have found that many of these are not as reliable as some of the old favorites when it comes to naturalizing, so lately we have been planting mostly 'Mt. Hood', 'King Alfred', 'Salome', and 'Ice Follies'. The deer, squirrels, chipmunks, and groundhogs steer clear of them, and the clumps grow larger each year, so we feel they’re a great investment, especially after a long, grey, Pittsburgh winter!  In several of the beds, we’ve interplanted the daffs with daylilies or peonies. This has worked well, since the daylilies and peonies tend to hide the yellowing foliage of the daffodils, which reduces my impulse to cut the dying leaves back (despite knowing I shouldn’t!). Hopefully these photos will brighten up your days the same way other gardeners’ photos have brightened mine."
