Something really unusual this year!

It has never happened before!

Some Daffodils have emerged in a strawberry bed, which is adjacent, although separated by a path.

It is possible some creature had been taking bulbs, lost some in the strawberry patch, which managed to get buried and have now sprung.

I am also wondering if I have got some which have sprung from seed. If so, likely to be five years or so before any blooms show. Wonder if yours truly will still be around to see them.

Will they survive? They show reduced vigour, which is to be expected compared with plant which has all the energy contained in the bulb behind it!

Do not know what to expect, as I grow a range (nine, I think) of variety of daffs. So these maybe a result of cross pollination.

Always a chance of a mutation, and a new variety with seed grown: that would be interesting, though the probability is low, and I have less than a dozen specimens.

Still, will watch for an opportune time to move them from the strawberry bed to a place where I can grow them on with a degree of protection.

Will have to see what develops over next few years.
