The Early Sensations

Today we celebrate the last day of February. It's a balmy 56 degrees today and the first daffodils of the year have opened.

This is our clump of "Early Sensation". It is a little light on the blooms this year. We have only 11 open trumpets in the clump. However, I counted another 7 buds that were forming blooms but seem to have rotted right on the stem. I wonder if our long stretch of cold weather in January affected the young buds? Well, it is still nice to have cheery yellow daffodils in February, even if there aren't too many of them.
