    I see the leaves of the daffodils are coming through all over the green in front of my house and seen a few camellias in flower.

    Lovely to see the snowdrops Tony.

    Wisdom is not putting it in a fruit salad.
  • Hi Pete, yes mine to its wonderful to see but come the cold weather and every thing will stop. But it's only a lull and then all of a sudden its spring glorious !

    You must have a nice sheltered garden, @tony williams2 ! I'm only about half an hour's drive from Sunny Scunny and mine are just barely showing their noses.
    Doncaster, South Yorkshire. Soil type: sandy, well-drained

    Just behind my back garden, on the edge of a farmer's field, are two kniphofias still in full flower in all their glory. It's crazy!  Virtually no frosts so far this winter down here in Kent
  • As above no signs of any leaf snowdrops but some daffs showing leaf but will be many weeks before they flower.
    Lovely snowdrops @tony williams2

    I have had the small multi flowered narcissus in flower for a month now! I know it's milder down here but that is too early.
