Was out yesterday so had a look today; I am amazed as to what's in flower, albeit "only just" in some cases!
Winter-flowering jasmine is really giving it laldy at the moment!
Wallflowers (those that haven't blown out of the ground!)
Primula wanda & others
Viburnum bodantense Dawn
Sedum spectabile - horizontal but still red!
Lamium (the mainly white leaf with purple flowers)
Pansies, various colours
Osteospernum Springstar Magenta- 5 flowers & loads of buds
Scabious, pale lilac, tatty but flowering
Anthemis Tinctoria EC Buxton (the one I forgot to cut down)4 flowers
Sweet William, just a couple of stems
A small creeping ranunculus has 2 tatty almost gone flowers
Clary sage has a couple of purple bracts
Achilleas have a few flower heads left
The Chaenomeles Rubra & Pink Lady are not actually out but the buds are really fat
The cineraria has lots of buds showing yellow but none out
Finally, the wide bowl of autumn crocus of which about 20% flowered in the autumn has 1 plant with a hint of purple thinking about coming through.
A few bulbs here & there are poking through the ground & those in troughs & pots are up a couple of inches or so -it'll be a long time before they're out!!
Not a sign of flowers on my Gautheria, but lots of berries
