A Host of Brooklyn Daffodils

THE SCENE last week in my friend Nancy’s Boerum Hill backyard…

This is what comes of twenty years of throwing bulbs into the ground and letting them do their thing: April abundance!

Lots of daffs, leucojum (they look like tall lilies of the valley), and a glossy, large-leaved yellow flowering thing we don’t remember the name of. Anyone?




To come: blue-purple wood hyacinths and a wonderful tree peony, which blooms reliably in mid-May.

    Lovely – “Glossy, wide-leaved yellow flowering thing” is Erythronium – Trout Lily.
