Tête-à-tête is the name of these pretty miniature narcissi. (It took me a while to figure out all those accents, my keyboard doesn't speak French very well!) A friend gave me the planted bulbs as a Christmas gift and they have flowered quickly in my cosy little house. They will be short-lived but they do bring a welcome hint of spring to these dark, cold days. I spent a happy few minutes with my iPhone and some apps to add some texture to the image. It looks a bit painterly. My daughter bought me a set of watercolours for Christmas... I wonder if I could actually paint this?
