    I have plants coming up every year that my late wife planted. They are bulbs but I have no idea what they are. I would like to label them. Any ideas ? Thank you.

    The first ones look like Chionodoxa Bulbs "Luciliae" Glory Of The Snow. Not sure of the second one as the flowers haven't opened yet.

    I agree with Eileen... first one is definitely Chionodoxa. The second one is some form of Narcissus, could be a regular Daffodil

    Chionodoxa luciliae (Glory of the Snow)
    Also up at the top of this page in the black bar under GardenStew click on Plants, then enter Daffodil in the search block, it will come up with 2 pages of Narcissus (Daffodil) photos and growing information.

    Chionodoxa have now been subsumed into Scilla, so the name is Scilla luciliae.

    Second one is either daffodils or narcissus. Wait til it blooms to be certain.
    Sorry about the spell error. I used the mic to make the reply and didn't re read it.

    Narcissus is the genus that includes plants of various common names including Daffodils.

    Thank you all for the input and at least I know what they are now. I checked on the Narcissus side of matters and after searching around and looking closely at the buds they are Narcissus. I must be going daft not to have known this. I should have waited for them to open. I had completely forgotten what they looked like before. Thanks all.

    Narcissus was going to be my guess looking at the bud. Daffs are quite a bit chunkier in appearance as they have a lot more bloom to them as a opposed to the tiny trumpet of the narcs.
