ABC Wednesday: J is for Jonquil

Jonquil is a tone of the color yellow and is also used as a name for narcissus (daffodil is another name for some narcissus).
Jumping jilly there sure are a lot of jonquils in my part of the world this time of year.
The center of the narcissus below is the jonquil color.
And below is another juicy jonquil.

These are absolutely beautiful photographs of a common flower signaling spring, Carver! The light behind the first daffodil makes me think I can reach out and grab it.:)

Ah! I learned something. I've read a fantasy novel where all the faeries were named after flowers and one of the characters was named Jonquil.

oh sweet Carver, this Jonquil is magnificent!
The second shot is also so adorable ( I imagine little Luna there among the flowers and the beautiful tree with some butterflies) Cool!

Oh my, this is Spring busting out all over your blog, and I'm loving it!!!!

Thanks so much for the reminder in all this rain....that Spring is coming.

Seen those flowers somewhere but didn't know or must have forgotten it, they were called Jonquils which sounds like a nice name in fact. Quite honestly sometimes I think they look lovelier and prettier on pictures like these.

Hildred said...

I yearn to see the jonquils, - they need a few more sunny days before one can truly say they are visiting.

Mine are not up yet...but I DO forget the interchangeable name between jonquil and daffodil (I wonder how that happened?)

Rajesh said...

Very lovely flowers.

Indrani said...

Jonquil: new to me.
