Daffodil season on Pender Island is stunning. Daffodils are one of the few flowers deer choose not to eat, so while my tulips have been eaten right down to the ground, the daffodils around our house flourish.
The lady who owned the house before us also enjoyed daffodils and had planted quite a few at the front of the house. These plants stand at least two feet high and are very well established.
This daffodil I planted in one of the planters on the back deck. I am still getting the hang of what grows in the planters as they are filled with perennials and bulbs that flower (and are eaten by deer and raccoons) throughout the summer.
I even managed to get a few flowers in the problem flowerbeds. In these beds I may have to think about replacing all the dirt as it is very difficult to get anything to grow in them. Perhaps starting fresh with a clean slate is the ticket.
Daffodil season will soon be over, I can’t wait to see what will bloom next.
