Narcissus of note: 'Decoy'

Now, I know, there are a million daffodils out there and we all like different ones for different reasons, but c'mon, look at this guy!
Narcissus 'Decoy' is a Division 2, large-cupped daffodil photographed here in late April.
The color is really what made me highlight this spring bulb over many others I've come to know and love this year. White Flower Farm describes the color well by saying that the cup goes from rosy-red to salmon-pink. In real life it looks like it's got a little lipstick on, it's a great little creature to look at.
