It has been incredibly warm here in Massachusetts – over 80 degrees the past few days – and our daffodils started blooming yesterday, over two weeks early. The forsythia is blooming as well and that’s about a month early. I don’t know what the long-term effects of this unseasonable weather will be, but I did have fun shooting daffodils today! This was the first daffodil to bloom in my yard!
