Where are the daffs?

There's been a little warmth in the air these past couple of days. Not that spring is obvious yet, even though it is March 16. The garden is very dry. Shouldn't have said that, given the forecast for the next few days! Not surprisingly, there's no sign of frogspawn in the pond yet.

Where are the daffodils? Look at what the garden was like a year ago, on March 23, here.

The snowdrops are hanging on though.

I like crocuses, but my attempts to establish large drifts seem only to have kept the mice well fed. Still, a few have survived, tucked away in corners, here beside a couple of my rescued old stones. None is ever turned away from Skip, no matter the age or condition!

I love the rich yellow at this time of year, which is why I'm missing the daffodils.

This was a surprise, a little iris. The holly was in a container over last winter with some spring bulbs. It got planted out last summer, and one of the bulbs has flowered again.
