My Daffs – normal size & mini – have now finished flowering for this year. I’ve had a great display & they have all pleased me very much!

This is a picture of the mini-Daffs dying back in one of the 3 troughs on the balcony railings.

This is what the same trough on the floor of the balcony with white Daffodils looked like in full flower on April 15th 2019:

This was what the trough on the balcony railings looked like when the mini-Daffs were in full bloom on April 15th 2019:

You are right, when the Daffs finally go over the balcony looks very sad! But while the leaves die back I have put pots of Geraniums amongst them! At the end of the month I shall remove the bulbs & put the Geraniums in their place.

They will look very pretty.

That’s certainly what I’m hoping for!

All the Daffs that have been in pots & the 3 toughs on the middle bar of the balcony railing have now been moved to Trinity Free Church gardens. I spent a couple hours replanting them .

I still have the Daffodils in the 3 white troughs on the balcony floor to take out & put in the church gardens. I hope to be able to do that during this last week of May so I can plant up the 3 troughs with variegated Geraniums.
