Shivering Daffodils

You expect sometimes to see the odd crocus poking up through the snow in Nairn but the daffodils have been caught out a little this time. The first daring bulbs had come up and the chill left in the Nairn air by the 5-0 defeat by local rivals Forres yesterday, persisted into Sunday and snow flurries became longer and longer and everywhere you would normally see green you are seeing white at the moment. Most pavement and road surfaces are resisting the temptation to follow suit at the moment but more tonight and perhaps in larger quantities is forecast.
