    Real beauties they are!

  2. Anne says:

    I have not seen these before, so have really enjoyed the colour combination.

    • Eliza Waters says:

      Thank you, Anne. This variety was one of the first hybrids that had peachy hues, now there are quite a few in various forms. I love the clean ivory of the perianth.

  3. Su says:

    Oooh, pretty!

  4. Karen Lang says:

    Beautiful ❤️

  5. Maria says:

    I don’t think I ever seen these before. Beautiful colour combination Eliza!

  6. The visual “sound” of those trumpets signals the beauty of spring.

  7. Alice says:

    Those grow beyond ‘peachy- keen!’

  8. Treah Pichette says:

    I can never get enough of these….so many beautiful varieties.

    • Eliza Waters says:

      IKR? Once can become obsessed with them. I love that the season is long with the early, mid- and late-season varieties. This heat, though, is throwing them over fast. But so much more is coming along, I don’t mind. 🙂

  9. Gorgeous!!!🙂 Do you think they would survive my backyard?

    I’ve never seen these, and they raise daffodils to a whole new level for me. I will say that ‘peach trumpets’ sounds like the name of an especially fetching desssert, probably made with puff pastry.

    • Eliza Waters says:

      Yes, it does, doesn’t it? Something with a rich, creamy filling! Better that a ‘peach strumpet,’ which would take us down a much different path. 😉

  11. So unique and very pretty!

  12. That is a great color combination for daffodils.

    Beautiful Peach Trumpets so well photographed. Thank you for making a rainy weekend much better!

    • Eliza Waters says:

      Thank you, Hien. The mid-Atlantic sure is getting a lot of rain lately. We’re hoping for a bit of it to head our way in the next day or so.

  17. Debbie says:

    These are gorgeous, Eliza! Thank you for sharing them. I don’t think I’ve ever seen this color combination.

  18. spanishwoods says:

    Absolutely gorgeous capture!

  19. Dale says:

    How lovely! I would have thought they were simply different coloured daffodils. Now I know better 🙂

  20. Tranature - quiet moments in nature says:

    Gorgeous daffodils Eliza, I love this colour combination !

  21. Now, that’s an absolutely gorgeous spring shot, and I love the header too. Happy Sunday!

  22. Kris P says:

    Gorgeous color. I’m surprised when I see daffodils now as ours have been over and done for months. While you’re finally able to luxuriate in spring, we’ve already landed in summer.

    • Eliza Waters says:

      Yes, many planting zones separate us! We had a cool spring making things slow down and last, but things changed last Thurs. when summer temps showed up and blasted the tulips and half the daffs. One more day and the temps will return to more normal May temps in the 70s, but it won’t last…more heat is in the forecast. The leaf canopy has exploded turning our world kelly-green!

  23. nshami14 says:

    Such a lovely shot. I don’t think I’ve seen trumpets in nature before, but I’m loving them. Plus, in general, I’m a fan of that peach and coral palette. It’s softly joyful. You capture nature like a boss. How did you cultivate your photographic eye?

  24. pbmgarden says:

    Perfect title. It’s a lovely daffodil. I agree with the comment above–you really have a keen photographic sense.

  25. Very Nice Eliza!!

  26. I’m joining the chorus of admirers, Eliza. This is not a color combination I had ever seen before.
