i live north of watford (!) and our crocuses have been in flower for the last 2 or 3 weeks now!! also, i had my first daffodil blooming 5 weeks ago but then it got hit by the first lot of snow. my second and third daffodils then got sideswiped by the second lot of snow! and today, i saw my first painted lady, luckily my wallflower 'bowles mauve' has flowers on it!! mild weather indeed!!
