29th Feb 2008. Today you can see that lots of my flowers have opened. They really brighten up this cloudy spring day in Cardiff.
28th Feb 2008. My flower is now fully open. It is bright yellow and has six large petals. It is 37cms tall. If you look inside you can see the stigma and anthers.
28th Feb 2008. If you look at the flower from the side you can see it is shaped a bit like a trumpet.
26th Feb 2008. Finally my 1st Daffodil flower has opened! It will take a day or two to open fully. Before it opened, the head tilted downwards.
22nd Feb 2008. Here is a close-up of the bud. You can see it's still wrapped up in its casing and not yet open. It should tilt downwards just before it opens.
22nd Feb 2008. The leaves are 25cm tall. They have begun to open out - so they can catch more sunlight to start storing energy. The bud is slightly taller at 32cms.
8th Feb 2008. Leaves and bud are a 11cms tall.
31st Jan 2008. First Daffodil leaves and bud appear. 4cm tall.
Here is my Daffodil Picture Diary.
Each week I will be uploading new pictures of my Daffodil plants - as they grow! Compare them with your own.
