Vagaries of Erlicheer
One of the earliest daffodils in my garden, Erlicheer got ready to bloom during a really warm January. February came bringing hard freezes and the blooms blasted. The empty sepals are brown and dry. When I reached to snap one off, it gave a little pop the way morning glory buds used to pop when we were children bent on making noises. Maybe dry weather affected them as well.
