    I didn’t know that about jonquil! Which daffodils are jonquils and which are not as fragrant? I hope I can find some, too! This is a beautiful pick– it went right into my favorites.

    Thanks for the Jonquil info. I have lots of daffodils – many sizes. Some look
    like the photos of the Jonquil. Beautiful picks!

    From what I am reading, the jonquils are smaller and more delicate than the daffodils. The best distinction I can see is that if they specify “Fragrant Jonquils” then you would actually get fragrant jonquils. If I were ordering bulbs I would make sure to order them specifically. If I went to a large garden store, I would think you could ask for them to be sure. The feedback I see on the internet makes them look like good growers and good bloomers. They did say that they separated them from the daffodils because they are smaller in size. Looks like they might be a little pricier too.
    Hope this helps.

    Your flowery pick is so lovely it’s almost fragrant! Nice to see so many beads named Jonquil. I think the jonquils are paler yellow than the bigger daffodils.

    Thanks for the heads up on the flower differences. Your pick is lovely with the added hints of blue. Reminds me of a clear sky on a sunny day–sitting in the backyard admiring the blooming flowers.

    Such a perfect POD for Early Spring! Our Daffodils are still sleeping underground but soon they’ll be poking their heads up to the sun. Congratulations on your fragrant POD!

    Congrats on your beautiful POD! I worked at one of the !ocal garden and flower shops in my hometown on college breaks. My break between spring semester and summer semester I worked in the garden semester. Yes, daffodils and jonquils are different. Jonquils are smaller. They are different in color also. The daffodils we sold were mainly yellow. Mosquitos were usually white back pedals and the cup was sunny yellow or a darker golden yellow.

    I love yellows and golds, especially paired with blues. I would take one of the “Czech Glass Turquoise Picasso w/ Gold Sun Coin 22mm” and make it a drop center, nestled between a short wire filled with “Czech Fire Polished Glass Opaque White Picasso Round 4mm”, then hang that from a cord or chain with something larger, maybe just a decorative chain long enough to drop over the head so it would need no link / fastener. I do admire the choices, you’ve given me some great ideas.
