Need Help Identifiying This Daffodil

Back in December, I bought four bags of daffodil bulbs from our MG group. I know I bought Texas Star, Geranium, Earlicheer, and something with the word giant in it. These bloomed yesterday. The blooms are pretty big. They fill the palm of my hand. They also smell nice with a very light pretty scent. I know they are not Earlicheer (which smells bad)or geranium (it is white and light orange). So is it Texas Star or the giant whatever. The picture I found of Texas Star looked a little lighter than this, but that could just be the exposure. If you have a guess or actually know what this is I would appreciate any input.

Above are my pitiful tomatoes. They have been stuck in a window sill for weeks. I didn't trust that the temperature in the greenhouse would stay above 40. I added more potting mix and put them in the shade on the deck. I should be ashamed of myself and turn in my MG badge. The varieties are Early Girl and Better Boy hybrids along with Cherokee Purple, Yellow Pear, San Marzano, Green Zebra, and some sort of cherry which are self-polinating heirlooms.

  1. I'm not sure about that daffodil, but I'm worried about your high did it all turn out? Are you on an arc now? Or an island? Or a desert? Or what? Did the rain end? I need answers!

  2. We are on the east fork of the Trinity River and it is out of its banks but far away from us. Everything is sopping wet, but the high water is out of the neighborhood. It was scary but my whole family is just fine. Thanks for your concern.

    My Walmart tomatoes are HUGE....I don't know what you are doing wrong!!

  4. You have to excuse her. Our meme has an imaginary vegetable garden and invisible compost.

    Ms. N indentified the big daff. It is Gigantic Star. TA DA.

  5. Funny post here girls ..
    Hey .. have fun camping .. watch out for those darn SNAKES ! LOL
    Happy Easter .. or Spring ? .. Evidently Ontario is not going to have one this year .. just winter to winter .... JEEZ !

  6. Sorry again Joy. It can't stay like that forever. Look at the picture of bunnies. That should make you smile.

  7. I love the photo of the tomatoes since I ALWAYS start seeds before the days are long enough and wind up with dozens of pots that look just like yours.

    Maybe mine are the lost relative of yours.

  8. Thanks Martha. It is good to know I am not alone.
