Starting with my most surprising:
rudbeckia indian summer (think January is stretching that concept quite far)
chanomeles - red one and madame butterfly
erysium bowles mauve
pulmonarias - blue ensign, opal and trevi fountain all going for it
rose - little white pet
then, more usual, hamamellis, winter honeysuckle, viburnum dawn, hellebores (oriental and stinking), cyclamen coum, rosemary, vinca, primroses, euphorbia, hazel catkins and gaulteria (if, like Fairy, I get to count the white blobs)
But still, indisputably the belle of the ball is my old friend Jackie P:
....what a gal !!
From a cold but sunny Suffolk:
Hellebores - many & various but mainly oriental hybrids
Primulas - various
Pulmonaria - various
Roses - Wollerton Old Hall
- Wisley 2008
Scented stocks (not pulled out in the autumn clear out )
Viburnum - Bodnantense
.... and that yellow spring bulb that grows like a weed - looks a bit like a dandelion flower - pretty in ones and twos but is very invasive - bulbils look like little potatoes - brain's gone - help me someone...
Forgot to add how much I enjoyed doing that ....like Nut, i keep my lists from year to year ...wouldn't miss it as a NY experience. I think it beats champagne.
Hmm, some missing from previous years - no roses, and fewer flowering weeds
This list seems more 'season - appropriate' than some of yours ... possibly due to the fact that most of my beds are in shady areas ... until the new beds are created ...
Cyclamen coum rubra
Helebore orientalis Mrs Betty Rannicar
Red deadnettle (lamium purpureum)
Lawn daisy (bellis perennis)
Hellebore orientalis 'Tutu'
Hellebore ericsmithii 'Snow Love'
Viburnum bodnantense 'Charles Lamont'
Clematis cirrhosa 'Freckles'
Crocus 'Snow Bunting'
In cold frame: Begonia semperflorens
Almost out - Sarcocca confuse and lots of snowdrops
It's cooler here than of late but no frost yet and no rain so far today
So here's my list :-
Winter Heathers white and pink
Various Primroses and Polyanthus
Vetch and common daisy
Winter Jasmine And Honeysuckle
Mahonia and Viburnum tinus
Roses - pink and apricot
In pots - Coreopsis, nemesia, pelargoniums, bedding cyclamens, begonia semperflorens, isotoma, pansies and viola, polyanthus and primroses
Nearly out - Hyacinths and Tete a Tete Daffs, skimmia
Only those things I put up pictures of for Christmas, nothing much else beside Iris Lady Stanley.
I'm really surprised at the things you all have flowering, my garden seems pretty much normal for this time of year (I'm in the NE tho)...I was in the midlands at Xmas and everything seemed much further along than up here...
I counted 8 things flowering that are real plants and 6 weedy plants that I am currently tolerating
Some of the perennials mentioned above melted away with the cold weeks ago and the bulbs are nowhere near ready
Sorry, feeling very lazy.
There are a lot, some late stuff still going strong, but some early stuff no further forward than usual.
