What you should know about daffodils

Splash it with color

NEVER, it seems safe to say, have you had such license to cut loose with a paintbrush as you do this year when you're painting outdoor furniture. Everywhere I go I see even the solidest of citizens doing it. It's expected of you. Scarlet, beige, black, lime yellow, Prussian blue, parlor pink, cabbage-worm green-- the zanier the better. The pleasing thing about it is that out on the terrace or in the garden it looks right gay and nice.

Grow these for quick color

WHEN you want lots of color quickly, flowers to cut by the armful, and bloom all summer, you want annuals. For earliest possible bloom, sow seed indoors, then transplant-- or buy started plants in May. But you'll still get plenty of flowers if you wait till the danger of frost is past and sow the seed of quick-growing varieties where you want the plants to grow outdoors.
