The first signs of spring appear to be here, with this early sight of daffodils in bloom.
The bright yellow flowers were spotted in King's Lynn creating a colourful backdrop to the gloomy last days of winter.
It is difficult not to feel warmth when spotting a patch of daffs but they are not the only plants to mark the start of the warmer season.
Gail Lees, chairman of Snettisham Gardening Club, said they usually followed snowdrops and crocus.
'Daffodils shoot up really quickly in the warmth,' she said. 'It's a sure sign that warm weather is coming. They increase in numbers over time - when they finish growing you just need to cut the green back.
