Yellow daffodils

Yellow in the 'we've been deprived of sunshine until yesterday' sense, that is. These miniature daffodils have become my springometer over the last few years. The snow which had been covering them finally melted yesterday (don't worry, there's still plenty everywhere else!). On April 2nd last year these daffodils were about the same size, but a bit greener:

And last year set a record for us in lateness of flowering for them. 2014 looks like it might top that! The average temperature in this area for March is -1°C (30°F). This year we've had an average of -5°C (23°F).

But, hey, I can finally see the daffodils, so at least things are improving!
