I'm growing them in a old clay pot outdoors and of the ten bulbs I planted only three so far have shown any signs of coming up, this one quite a bit ahead of the rest.
I wonder why that is? Just what is it that makes one bulb break through whilst another stays asleep in the ground?
I have a single daffodil too that seems to be in something of a hurry for spring. I can just see the bud forming, yellow petals beneath the shield of green, another early bird who I hope doesn't catch the worm - or at least the slug.
No, it isn't spring yet. But things are beginning to move in the garden. It won't be long before I'm seized by that dratted gardening bug all over again and what then?
