Day of the daffs

Daffodil picture with adjusted colours.
My first daffodil opened on the 11/3/11. It is 40cm tall.
Can you name the parts of this flower?
9/3/11 Flower just starting to open.
7/3/11 Bud ready to open.

Hooray the daffs have arrived!

Reports from Ysgol Y Ffridd, Ysgol Nant Y Coed & Ysgol Cynfran. Mine too have opened and are as beautiful as ever.

See the charts and maps

I've taken some pictures. Please send in your pictures and don't forget to take part in the flower drawing competition. If you have half an hour of sunshine pop outside to do some sketches for your flowers.

See comments from schools below.

Many thanks
