FOTD – September 24 – Japanese Iris and Jonquil

Welcome to my Flower of the Day Challenge (FOTD).  During the winter months, please feel free to use your archives and find some old favorite photos.

Please feel free to post every day or when you you feel like it.  Don’t forget that my FOTD challenge accepts gardens, leaves and berries as well as flowers.

Letter A – Judy from Lifelessons and I are playing with the Alphabet for flower names. Feel free to play along with us if you want. If you want help identifying flowers that start with a specific letter check out AllMyFavoriteFlowerNames.

If you don’t want to play along please just post a flower as usual.

  1. Is there any difference between a jonquil and a daffodil? They look exactly the same to me, but of course I’m not handling that plants and there may be subtle differences I don’t recognize.

    • I don’t know that much about the differences. Here is what I do know. All jonquils are daffodils, they are a sub category of daffs. Daffodils for the most part have a point in the middle of their petals. Jonquils the petals are more curved. So is my photo a daff or a jonquil. Depends on the website I look at. πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ You are probably more confused now.

      • No. Just equally confused. I’m not great at identifying plants unless they are really obvious. Right now, most of what I see are strangling vines. They are the ONLY things that grew during the long dry summer and they are destroying anything that survived in the garden. I think they’ve even killed the roses — and I didn’t think that was possible. THOSE I can identify. Anything more subtle? Nah. That’s why I ask. I hope someone else knows what I don’t know πŸ˜€

    • Marilyn asked the same question. I copied my response for you.
