On a walk with my granddaughters yesterday..we passed many clumps of 6inch daffodil shoots...unusual for December?

A brave little narcissus (sp?) was actually flowering in one of the tubs at work when I left on Thursday.

In Norfolk recently we saw daffs in a garden already in flower.

Same here in my garden. My irises are also showing.

We have some primroses out and a lonely pansy

Not unusual as it is mild at the moment. Daffodils have the ability to delay growing if the weather turns cold. Even a covering of snow doesn’t harm them.

Lovely aren't they? Gives some hope that Spring will arrive eventually!

No sign of our daffs but the irises are poking their heads above ground ...

I had a Facebook memory come up yesterday, reminding me of the Christmas we spent in London in 2015. There were daffodils in flower on the roundabouts and verges. confused

I bought the first batch of daffodils from ASDA a couple of days ago. They are just lovely and make me smile.

My first daft is in bud, one cowslip out and a little violet

The snowdrops and cyclamen are out already, very pretty under the shrubs. Next will be the primroses - roll on Spring!

SO lucky, in Torbay we have everything flowering early! Narcissus out at Christmas, and daffodils, snowdrops and iris out now too.
It IS very uplifting to know that Spring is round the corner....
Mind you, although we rarely get snow, in recent years we had it in March, (twice) and right now for the 3rd consecutive morning, I can see frost lying on the beach where the tide doesn't reach.
