    That's good, I've only got one crocus and one daffodil in flower with lots of snowdrops.😀

    I have three stray daffodils out at the allotment  :) but intend to have a reasonable sized patch next year "King Alfred" they stand well and make a good cut flower.

    I've just been out and planted 18 small pots of minnow daffs that I put in the pots last September.  Then reused the pots for some species tulip bulbs that should have been planted in November (better late than never).  It looks lovely and sunny but now my toes and fingers are freeeeeezing! Crocuses and snowdrops are in full bloom and the minnow daffs'll be out by the weekend if it stays sunny.

    Sunny but cold today.  Pruned some of the clems and the rest of the roses.  Fish, Blood and boned the borders.  Have one climbing rose still to prune (New Dawn) have to psych myself up for that one, large and very thorny.  Crocus are looking lovely, lots of daffs in bud.

    Nice dry sunny day, got out and did some tidying of the bottom borders, noticed broad beans in pots in the glasshouse starting to show a bit of green growth.

    Didn't do any gardening unless you count picking up a few dead leaves and putting them in the bin. Was heartened by the sight of a clump of pulmonaria "Blue Ensign" in the sunshine.  :)

    Was planning to but unexpected visit from daughter put hold on that. Hope I haven't missed all the nice weather.

    I have a very large Ceanothus which had some dead-looking areas last year so, after giving it the benefit of the doubt for a year, the dead bits have been ‘pronounced’ and trimmed off. The shrub looks a bit bare in places (some may say cut the whole thing down to six foot) but hopefully this gives it a chance at new growth this year. 
    Very pleased to see buds and a few blossom flowers on my Cherry Plum today - delightful.
