at last ... spring reaches cumbria

Following today's earlier blog about daffodils having reached Falmouth, Virginia, my co-editor, Wallace Heim, sends a pic (left) from Low Wood, Cumbria:

The first daffodils appeared yesterday. They're the wild variety up here, in the brambled edge between the woods and the village, on a fairly steep, stony slope. The cultivated ones, civicly planted along the roads, haven't blossomed yet.

(Low Wood's latitude and longitude are: north: 54°15"; west: 3°2")

On the Today programme on Tuesday, they asked: Where is spring?
