Seen any daffodils yet?

It's Mothers Day and I hear there is a daff crisis. Have you seen any flowering trumpets yet?

The snowdrops have been out for ages and the crocus-s have joined them but not one daff yet.



Happy Mothers Day Mum!

  1. No daffodils in Lancashire, the snowdrops and crocuses only came out this week. Think everything is late this year.

  6. I think that second cold snap was to blame, ours are just budding. The park's usually full of kids picking bunches for their Mums to-day. I give them a look but I don't really mind as it saves me dead-heading.Loved the picture, b.t.w.

  9. Our tete-a-tetes are now flowering but the daffodils are only just forming buds here on the South Coast. Although there is a garden right on the seafront that has daffodils fully out but they're the only ones we've seen...they look wonderful and I wish ours would get a wriggle on!

  10. Crocii (?) are out, but no daffs- all have flower heads, but look like another week away from flowering!

  12. Hi everyone. So first sighting on the south coast (even if a neighbour's, Nina).

    Please do let me know when they do first appear 'in the wild' around your patch. We could track the progress of the season from south to north. Last year I remember driving from Edinburgh to Aberdeen and noticing how much less further on they were as you went north. This Easter we're off to Thurso (Think John 'o Groats - it's next door) but I expect they'll be well out by then, even up there - I'll let you know.

  14. Yes first sighting yesterday of daffodils on grass verges, I guess this weeks sun has egged them on a bit!
    For anyone still craving that spring yellow I've put a picture of my tete-a-tetes up on my blog to share.

    (same southcoast nina - different blog!)

  15. Our mini daffs are out but not the big cousins yet. I did see one or two though in a garden near us in Ossett West Yorkshire.
