Default Sceptical about December Daffs

On tuesday the 21st Paul Hudson of looknorth fame showed a photo of
daffs in flower in a garden in yorkshire. As other resent years have
been milder than this I believed this to be a fake so I emailed him.
This is his reply:

"Our reporter has seen them for himself....i don't know what he has
used
but they are there and looked genuine enough to him. I have had 3
other
e-mails from viewers whose daffodils are in bud."

So is this in fact true. If so is it down to an early flowering
species or unusual environmental factors. Personally the daff shoots
have just shown in my garden and are about 2 weeks later than the last
few years. Please prove me or paul write.

My daffs are 4 inches high but not showing colour yet (Rijnveld's Early
Sensation, one of the earliest\). I spotted a Winter aconite about to open
in the garden today and celandine virtually open. Snowdrops are showing
white buds

They've started picking daffs on the the farms behind Penzance this week,
which is early, normally it's nearer the 3rd week in January. Mind you, I've
yet to see one properly in flower.

They were picking Sols on Scilly in late October! The question is were they
the 2004 ones late, or the 2005 ones early!

Still waiting for the first air frost.
