it's a mile an hour in the states

The results are in:

The southernmost daffodil (and first) arrived in Jacksonville, Florida, January 25, and the northernmost daffodil arrived in Ft. Kent, Maine April 15. The distance was 1884 miles in 80 days, 23.5 miles per day or about 1 mile an hour.

Backstory: Stephen Fry says daffs move at a third of a mile an hour in the UK. An Atlanta school measures the progress. Our co-editor gets a daffodil post-card to fill in.
