Daffodils on my front walk are budded, one even started to bloom cause we've had some decent weather lately. Well, tonight and tomorrow night they're saying around 17 degrees. Will the hard freeze kill them? Is there any way I can protect them? It's been upper fifties and sunny here the last several days, I don't know if that is pertinent. they are also close up by the garage and corner of the house and get a lot of solar heat

Thanks for any advice you can give this first-time-homeowner-single-guy-gardener-newbie. They look really nice, and I'd hate to see them die!

dont' sweat it
they won't "die" really...
Might screw up the flowers a lil...
I honestly wouldn't worry about the daffodils, they are pretty tough.
