Spring has sprung in Exmouth
A clump of daffodils which flwoered in Exmouth some four months eraly has prompted the question to be asked - has spring sprung early in Exmouth?
Spring has sprung early in Exmouth after a smattering of daffodils was discovered in Portland Avenue.
The highly-scented, miniature daffodils began blooming in the corner of a garden of an Exmouth pensioner at the end of October – four months early.
It is not yet fully winter, but the challenge is now on to find if any other signs of spring have been spotted in the area.
The early daffodils belong to a 78-year-old woman, who did not want to be named. She said the blooms’ shoots were visible on October 25 and began flowering on her late father’s birthday - October 28.

The woman said the small group of flowers had begun to fade now after being in bloom for several weeks.
The pensioner said: “It’s quite remarkable. I don’t think anybody would think this would happen in Exmouth. I think it’s because of the climate."
