... snowdrops and other hellebores are in bud but not flowering yet.

    the frost and snow over the last couple of weeks have reduced my potential numbersimage

    But it doesn't matter. The team search the garden as usual and the mulled wine/mince pie session will be our reward

    Until last week had Lobelia tupa in flower ; fading flowers on Melianthus major (a bit late)

    ; Fatsia japonica 

    Arbutus unedo flowering and fruiting simultaneously (!)

    ; Liriope muscari sending up further flower shoots

    ; Schizostylis coccinea and 'Pink Princess' still showing  .

    Not a lot else at the moment ; Hellebores are all showing buds and the majority of my bulbs have resurfaced.

    If the weather's reasonable on NYD I'll pop out into MIL's S. Lincs garden and do a count there too image

    Thanks for starting this thread, Dove. I'm looking forward to NYD tomorrow to do my count and hopefully take photos, but it's very windy and rainy at the moment and there's a forecast of storm 'Carmen' which will maybe ruin some of the few remaining flowers. We'll see.image

    You are invited to a virtual visit of my garden (in English or in French).

    Do potted plants on a patio count? If they do, then mine are:

    Coronilla citrina

    Polyanthus

    Erysimum "Winter Orchid"

    Crimson bottlebrush.
