Yes, daffodils. Punxsutawney Phil be damned.
American hymn writer Anna B. Warner almost predicted this, more than 100 years ago:
Daffy-down-dilly came up in the cold/ Through the brown mould/ Although the March breeze blew keen on her face/ Although the white snow lay in many a place.
Except Warner was talking about April. Might we remind you, it’s early February.
But this weekend may bring more wintry weather to the Washington region, thanks to a small possibility of snow.
Whatever will the daffodils think?
