Every New Year's Day we have a flower count to see what is blooming in our gardens. I keep a record in my garden notebook so that I can compare each year ... nothing scientific but just out of interest. Not tight buds, but open or almost open blooms.
I don't think my count this year will be as high as last year when it was very mild, but I have noticed a few blooms appear over the past few days.
We're taking a trip on New Year's Day and I'll have to get up early to do my count so I thought I'd start the thread today to give newbies a 'heads up' ...... and if you're going to be away for the weekend o one's going to mind if you do your count early and post it today or tomorrow
