Spring may not officially start until Sunday, but the milder sunshine was already enticing visitors to the county’s parks and gardens yesterday.
Nowton Park, near Bury St Edmunds, looked a picture with a carpet of bright yellow daffodils lining each side of the central avenue of trees.
Although the temperature was far from balmy with a seasonal high of just 10C, dog walkers, families and youngsters took advantage of the clear blue skies and enjoyed taking a stroll among the blooms.
But according to Phil Garner, a forecaster at UEA-based Weatherquest, Thursday’s sunshine is not set to last.
“Life is expected to get a bit cloudy and cool over the next couple of days,” Mr Garner said.

“Cooler conditions will move in overnight and we will see a misty Friday morning with some drizzle.
“Saturday will be cloudy with one or two light rain showers. I think we will have to wait until Monday or Tuesday next week before we see bright sunny conditions returning.”
