Is my bay finally going to flower?

Hi,

Almost 5 years since I bought this tree and it looks like it might finally be thinking of flowering. 

Have I got this right? It’s not just something it does every year and I’ve got some kind of lockdown/Covid addled brain/memory thing going on! 

Your input, as always, appreciated, loved, required!

    Looks like it's about to flower. They are very subtle, you might say, and I don't think there's much you can do with the berries either.
    In London. Keen but lazy.

    How exciting Greenman. Just been out to check mine, see below, but nothing showing. Mine is only about a metre high though. Will you show up please when they open?

    Mine doesn’t flower every year.  This was a couple of years ago.  About February I think, the Hellebores are out underneath it. 


    Gardening on the wild, windy west side of Dartmoor.

    Any excuse to show its 2017 pic compared to now.....

    (I moved it here when we had the nasty winds at the end of 2021 and haven't moved it back "home" yet)

    Keep an eye on it @TheGreenMan.....the Blackbirds and Wood Pigeons love the berries and happily distribute them everywhere.  Either thru their droppings or just being very casual and knocking off what they didn't manage to scoff.  My garden is full of Bay seedlings  :D
