I think it may have been running a day or two late, 'cos it's looked quite sunny outside today. I was just griping about the weather yesterday which seemed to have been continuing the horrible clammy cold of recent weeks.
(I saw snow either in the air of nearby on the ground every day for over a fortnight, up till last weekend. OK, the final Friday of that involved a mere three snowflakes. And some of the previous days were unmelted remnants of large snow piles in foreign parts.)
Oh when I said 'Not even our daffs have appeared yet', I was meaning the flowers - the plants themselves are thrusting and vigorous.
