Nutcutlet.......sounds as if you have quite a bit of stuff to enjoy
I've got little really flowering ( due to my clearance programme over the last couple of years ).......Winter honeysuckle has some flowers, one or two Hellebores making the effort and an old Mahonia just opening. Oh, my Daphne ( marginata ) a poor rescued specimen is just breaking it's buds I noticed today. My Lemon tree (Quatre Saisons) has several flowers open but as I have now planted in the garden, I imagine they won't last too long if the weather turns. The winter heathers look healthy and full of flower , some Heucheras still flowering as is the Cestrum parquii.
My neighbour's Cornus mas leans over the boundary wall.....plenty of buds showing.
Just out of interest, did anyone else notice a bumper crop of cob nuts this year ? I only have 2 trees but managed to harvest a few kilos.
