Rosie's Flowers.

Please enjoy.
Jonquils. At least that's what I've always called them. Are daffodils something different? Is it a regional thing?
My Bachelor's Buttons are just starting to bloom. I love the vibrant blue color.
Hyacinths and tulips.
This is stock. It smells delicious. And it comes in pink and lavender and lilac and blue.
Vinca or periwinkle.
Plum blossoms.

I think that daffodils vs. jonquils is regional as both seem to refer to the same plants.

Periwinkle quickly overpowers, as the side of my house can testify to, but the color is so delicious, I can't bring myself to rip it ALL out.

"Daffodil is a common English name, sometimes used now for all varieties, and is the chief common name of horticultural prevalence used by the American Daffodil Society..... The name jonquil is sometimes used in North America, particularly in the South, but strictly speaking that name belongs only to the rush-leaved Narcissus jonquilla and cultivars derived from it."
