Sweet and aromatic

We can't tell if it's pea blossoms, cyclamen, violas, narcissi, or a couple of pinks, or a mix of all, but the yard smells wonderful. All hyacinths are showing tips. Two squirrel-planted "Montopolis" narcissi from Bastrop are coming into bloom. These are the ones that have a creamy perianth, multiple flowers on a stalk, and a very rounded, small, pale yellow cup that fades just a bit. These are very long-lived blooms and nothing ever stops them. Geraniums are liking all this. The poor roses are leafing out again; something ate them up all the year long.
