    Hi Gardengirl. I think we can stretch the rules that far.

    flowering rose, it is mild, we did have a few minor frosts (minus 3C) several weeks ago but otherwise mild, wet and often windy. Bulbs coming up, it will be interesting to see the long term effects of all this rain. This time last year I was concerned about the long term effects of all the dry. We'd had 2 winters without a good soaking. Hard to imagine now

    Thanks nutcutlet I will let you know my flower count tomorrow - sure the bulbs are up early or they were just late last year because of the cold last winter

    This mild weather has them up early but if we get a cold spell they'll slow down. I've never had aconites on NYD before. On the other hand I usually have the winter iris which isn't out this year. Lack of sun last year would be my guess. I had hellebores on and off all summer but not now. They need another week or two of mild weather yet.

    Erisynum, Erigeron K (can never get 2nd part of variety but little tiny white daisy-like flowers), Not a flower but Carex Bronzita looks great and has had admiring comments especially with the way it blows in the wind, with its colour. Not much else - Viburnum bodnantense -first winter - so not expecting any. Oh and bergenia,
