"Dazzling, record-breaking relief"

". . .dazzling, record-breaking relief is promised, according to spring watchers at the National Trust and the Royal Horticultural Society: they say a later blooming than usual will mean a simultaneous flowering of all our wealth of daffs, hyacinths, narcissi, camellias and, my favourite, primroses. Even now the green probes of the daffodils are rising, the spear tips of an army just below the icy horizon. Soon they will unfurl their trumpets. . .(Horatio Clare)
