When hubby and I bought the house from my parents, I added more bulbs and again each spring, they would pop up. When we sold the house in 2000, I dug up a lot of these bulbs to plant in front of our new home in Patterson. The first few years, they grew and I loved seeing the familiar site of blooming daffodils. And then one year, hubby decided to dig around the area and pulled out or killed these bulbs. WTH! I was so upset! Apparently, he didn't realize how important these were to me. I have purchased bulbs since then, but it's just not the same. They are no longer my mom's.
