Re: How about a gardening thread?

Something I've been wondering lately, and here is as good a place to ask as any:

How do my clever little daffodils know that Easter is approaching, time to get blooming?

Easter can be as early as the third week of March and as late as the third week of April, yet my Osterglocken are always in synch with the holiday, regardless of the calendar or weather.

I had never noticed this until moving here... but then, it took learning German to make the connection.

(Clearly I have little to do this Sunday, and am left to musing... )
