Here in Pembrokeshire the roadside daffodils have been out since the second week in January in our village - this year they were late as last year they were out at Christmas!

Hellebores and snowdrops in full flower in my garden since the end of January and Camellias since last week.

Camellias trying hard. Saw lots of ladybirds in the garden today plus first brimstone butterfly and a 'humble bumble' bee! Always like to stroke the latter, never cause any harm. We had over 200 on the lavender last year. Lilacs budding up now, and paeonies popping through soil. Hope it lasts! 18C here this afternoon.

Very much behind everyone else here but my first crocus in flower.  They were supposed to be dark purple!  I think this colour is like the Posh Paint colour called elephants breath

Such a nice name! My crocuses just keep coming - Are some later than others?

Quite amazed to see Kalmia Latifolia out in full bloom...along with most of the normals for this time of year...also frogs 'at it' thankfully with each other rather than the fish, which they have drowned in previous years...doves are canoodling too...lets hope when the blossoms bloom forth that they are not dessimated with a late frost, as we have had hardly any this year.

 I planted a ring of Joan of Arc crocus round the bottom of the apple trees in pots. Only one  out here so far. It's purple   Just hoping the rest are J of A!

I created a woodland garden last year, by adding ferns, primroses and heucheras, plus a white border and by using the snowdrops, hellebores and acronites as a basis for the project.  So far, so good.
