Early Birds....Er, Flowers

The daffodils were blooming before Valentine's Day.  I can't remember them ever blooming quite this early.  And...it was nearly 70 yesterday.

What about you.  Are your spring flowers blooming or are they buried in snow?

  1. I have lots of green leaves, but no flowers yet. It's been unseasonably warm here, so I expect the flowers and buds on trees will be in for a shock should it turn cold again.

    What a wonderful sight at your place. Wish my daffs would bloom and look that goodl

    1. I was stunned to see them this early. Your flowers are probably better off hibernating for a few weeks. My tulips are popping through the ground. Hope they don't end up with frostbite.
      Have a great day.

    1. They are safer hibernating. I'm afraid we'll still end up getting a cold spell before spring truly arrives.
      YOU have a great one.
      Hugs back,

    2. Ha!
      I understand. I cut flowers but I always put them back outside when they die instead of in the trash.
      And I don't use real trees at Christmas time.

      in nature, please don't take their life by
      plucking them".

  4. Hello Sandra, we have lots of Snowdrops, Primroses and Christmas Roses so it is beginning to look and feel like spring. The daffodils are pushing up through the earth but no flowers yet and no snow (thank goodness). Have a lovely day, Barbara x

  7. I have the green tips of the first daffodil leaves showing. Usually see those in mid to late March I think. Weird weather this winter! Your daffodils look so cheery!

  8. Temps. were in the 50s over the weekend. Seasonably cool today, but temps going back up for the rest of the week! We might be able to see the grass when all the snow melts. Daffs? Way to early up here.

  11. I have the teeniest tip of a daff coming up too. Scary. I recovered it in mulch and hope we don't get anything that will "take it out" before its time.

  14. Still no blooms. But the days are getting warmer and longer. Any day now...
    This was a particularly cold winter for Greece, not much snow in Athens but cold..
