The symbols a Finnish Easter, pussy willow and daffodils. Have the Aunties jokingly pinched that basket of daffodils and making a quick getaway or are they just full of the joys of spring? Our daffodils are weeks behind, they were just opening up and then they disappeared under mounds of snow. The tough little things have shaken that off and once more putting the effort into blooming. I remember a few years ago it was thought that global warming would be a threat to the large, cold resistant cells of daffodils. After the coldest March since the 1960s I guess those flowers have nothing to worry about.
