I believe this is a narcissus, looking quite lovely today!

I would feel more optimistic about a bright future for man if he spent less time proving that he can outwit Nature and more time tasting her sweetness and respecting her seniority. E. B.White

Quite lovely indeed! I've posted this in another area but thought I'd do the same here. A couple of these are bloomin' in the greenhouse

Pretty! Is that narcissus also? What surprised me was this plant is in the ground and wasn't protected. I thought narcissus doesn't bloom until March.

Sorry Linda,...for bein' so late in responding.....that's what I believe to be Iris albicans...aka: White Cemetery Iris
I had Narcissus tazetta(s) bloomin' as early as January, this year...but they're really goin' to town now!

Sure they count...one man's weed is another man's flower. DH would tell you that I have no weeds (and i don't ) because I cram so many plants into such a small space.
