    Yes I think it is Pippit too
    The most serious gardening I do would seem very strange to an onlooker,for it involves hours of walking round in circles,apparently doing nothing. Helen Dillon.

    Narcissus Pipit .
    It's a jonquil-type Narcissus, meaning each stem can carry up to four fragrant flowers.
    It is a bit different from other daffs  it changes colour as it ages.

    Quotes from www....

    a. Soft lemon yellow petals with the base turning white.

    b. carrying up to four fragrant, lemon-yellow flowers 7cm across, the cups soon fading to creamy-white.

    c. bearing two or three lemon-yellow flowers per stem, the cups quickly fading to creamy-white. Sweetly fragrant,.

    d. lemon yellow petals with a creamy white cup.

    e. an unusual pale lemon and as they mature, the centre of the bloom fades to a creamy-white, creating a two-tone effect.
