Spring flower in Autumn

Was shocked to see this week a rather stunted Hyacynth struggling to flower!

I have spring drumstick primula in full bloom when they should be flowering in late March.I have seen this before when we have very mild autumn's and have not had any frosts yet.The forecast is to turn colder in a week or so.I think we should make the most of it as they will soon be gone.
