A Bed of Daffodills

These daffodils are growing beside Mr. Burbank's house. They were placed there for ornamental purposes, in all probability; but it is fairly certain that Mr. Burbank will note variations among them, and will select out various ones for further breeding experiments. It would be quite impossible for Mr. Burbank to have a bed of flowers of any kind thus growing beside his house without seeing opportunities for experiments that he could not resist.
