At Home: Daffodils vs. Severe Winds and Torrential Rains

When we left for NYC last Thursday evening, none of the daffodils had bloomed yet. Not too surprising since the weather hasn’t been exactly spring-like. But they did look ready to open.

It was a short stay, and we returned to the house Saturday morning. Looking into the backyard, I discovered that — lo and behold! — the daffodils had blossomed. I guess Friday’s temps in the 70’s was just the signal they were waiting for. And no doubt they were happy with Saturday’s 80 degrees.

Being busy that day, I didn’t get a chance to take photos. Which is a shame because the weather then made a total U-turn back to winter, dropping 40 degrees (!) overnight. Sunday was cold (mid-30’s) and rainy with severe winds. And things got even worse with Monday’s torrential downpours.

Poor little daffies! They were no match for such horrendous conditions.
