Did my Crocus flowers and daffodil got confused?

Hello.
As far as I know my Crocus and daffodils should start to grow in spring time.

Anybody knows if I'm wrong or they got confused of the wierd weather (about a month ago it was near 0 celsius degree but after that it was and still quite mild)

They are both outside. The daffodil is in my greenhouse but the door is always open so not warm in there.

Any ideas are very appreciated.

    Normal. They'll slow when weather cools.  :)
    Lots of threads on the subject - you can do a search in the box at the top of the page, although I think some are on the first coupe of pages of recent discussions if you just look there . 
    The daffs should be outside though, unless there's a specific reason for not doing that?

    Thank you for your quick answer. I'll definitely have a look at those threads. 
    I found that daffodil in a place where it shouldn't be so I removed it (it was probably left by the previous tenants. It never flowered.
    I put it into a pot gave feed, good soil, and I put it into my mini greenhouse (which is opened, never close it). I'm just hoping it gets stronger and next year there'll be a flower on it. 😊

    It should be fine. :)
    Sometimes, daffs come up 'blind' which is when there's only foliage, and that can be because they aren't planted deeply enough, the bulbs is too small to flower, or because a clump has become too congested. It could be any of those reasons that have meant no flowers.
    If you give daffs a feed as they're dying back, that helps build the bulbs up for the following year  too  :)

    The bulb was maybe too deep. I was surprised of it. I was hoping there are more than one bulb on it but it was only one. I would say it's a medium size. Well we will see. I'm looking forward. Only a couple of months to go. Time flies quickly. 😀
