Daffodils in Winter

We have planted a whole lot of daffodils around the place with an original aim of having an avenue of daffs along the drive.  Think of UK Country Life (although our original catalyst was a place at Riverton in South Australia).

That hasn't happened - a soil profile that descends to shale after 2 inches makes some things difficult - but we do have some nice blooms as we mov from Winter (today) into Spring (tomorrow).  Here are a few photos.

 I have included this image, of the same variety as an earlier shot, because the poor bulb is battling away at the top of the drive, with no soil and very little water.  Well done that plant!
 I am not convinced these are daffodils: perhaps Freesias  jonquils?
