Daffodils/buttercups...whichever your preference...I have a bunch of 'em that have been emerging since our warm December weather. The new ones that I planted are still dormant, but the ones that have been in the ground for 15 or so years are up about 6 inches now, and don't seem to be phased by the cold snap of late. No blooms, just the green part rising. Anyone else noticing flowers that want to bypass winter?

Daff's are tough as nails when comes to cold temps! My Prunus Mume went into bloom early and is now done. Normally it would have just been starting to bud out now.
As nice as the extended warm was in some aspects, not going to be as kind to some things now that very cold temps have arrived.

We've got irises that are a solid 6+" coming up out of the ground.  Just the green part so far.

Oh, should have mentioned also daff bulbs (and many others) not periodically lifted/divided/rejuvenated will eventually just put up greenery and little to no blooms.
