Jimmy - you're right - we need to bring Verdun up here for a proper winter next year!
I think ours has been a bit milder than normal here. Quite a few days getting above five degrees, and certainly better in the last couple of months of 2015.
Snowdrops only just forming in my garden. They'll be nice though.
I think that's the drawback of having a milder winter chicky - if/when it changes, you lose plants that are out at the wrong time.
