It’s a while since I’ve paid any attention to the front garden, apart from collecting stray rubbish which was caught amongst the plants. On Sunday, however, there was no mistaking the daffodil bud on the verge of opening.
I seem to remember that these mini daffodils were early flowering last year, when I got them as a present from my parents. I also think that they may flower twice, so I’m neither so surprised nor disappointed to see them in January.
The chard next to the daffodils, on the other hand, is looking decidedly the worse for wear. So there must be slugs about as well. No doubt they are enjoying the string of days at 13 degrees Celsius but it’s definitely weird.
Anyway, I may as well appreciate the upside of the unseasonably warm weather for the flowers – and lower heating bills!
