Signs of Spring

Winter has just officially begun and I know there's a lot of wet and cold weather to come.  Last year we had 3 days of snow in August, almost unheard of in Wellington.  Yet in the Botanic Gardens this weekend I found unmistakeable signs of Spring:
This daffodiul, Narcissus, in the rock garden and others near the tree house were in flower.
Corydalis in the rock garden.  For a discussion on the shape of these flowers see my earlier blog.
Snowflake, Leucojum aestivum.
