Jonquil & Jacopo
Many here and I have not planted a one, thanks be to the old farm that has, and STILL produces these flowers …many are double flowered…
Narcissus is the botanic name for a genus of mainly hardy, mostly spring-flowering, bulbs in the Amaryllis family native to Europe, North Africa, and Asia. There are also several Narcissus species that bloom in the autumn. Though Hortus Third  cites 26 wild species, Daffodils for North American Gardens cites between 50 and 100 excluding species variants and wild hybrids. Through taxonomic and genetic research, it is speculated that over time this number will likely continue to be refined. 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 range of forms in cultivation has been heavily modified and extended, with new variations available from specialists almost every year
Then there is...Jacopo
Jacopo is one of the four cat rescues I made last October. Earlier pictures can be seen at: Big Day here October 22, 2007 Wow what a day...A bonny Day October 28 also Stop - Don't Litter! Spay and Neuter on November 14. The pictures shown on this post were taken this weekend.
He is named for Jacopo (Character) from The Count of Monte Cristo (1934) Alexandre Dumas. Jacopo is the smuggler who saves Dantes from the sea right after he is thrown into the waves in the Abbe Faria's body bag. Dantes smuggles with Jacopo for a few months before recovering the Monte Cristo treasure. Jacopo later becomes the captain of Monte Cristo's yacht.
Jacopo is best described as loyalty, and his loyalty is vital to the development of Dantes' character and to the themes. Dantes' faith in humanity has been demolished by his experiences. Meeting Jacopo and receiving his kindness at his moment of escape ensures that Dantes will not be totally lost to bitterness. When Jacopo stays by him throughout, and even offers to share his treasure bounty with Dantes, Dantes realizes that Jacopo is an honest and trustworthy man. Dantes then knows he will be able to get past his vengeance.
