A host, of golden daffodils

Although it is February we are having many spring-like days with bright sunshine which is encouraging the flowers to bloom up to six or more weeks earlier than usual. Many of the daffodils are now fully out. However, some plants appear to be holding back and look as though they will flower later than anticipated.

We are very lucky to have wild primroses in our garden. A baby wild primrose was given to me over twenty years ago by an old country couple that lived in the wilds of Worcestershire. Their cottage backed on to craggy fields and they had wild primroses in their borders. This little baby primrose has only settled into one spot in my garden and has only spread approximately 6 inches. Here is a picture of it ... as you can see the leaves are especially short, so far, this year.
