Never ceases to give me joy when I first sight snowdrops in flower. I first noticed them in our garden on the 7th and more and more are springing up and flowering daily.
Also noticed that most daffodils are about 8 inches tall, a few have flowering stalks with the bud and we have just one over a foot tall with flowering bud head obviously keen to herald Spring.
Anyone else enjoying seeing early flowers in their garden?
We do have the odd few roses in flower, plus lithodora and aubrettia in flower, but sparsely.

Hi Ann saw these today and some narcissus .
Oh beautiful Dot. They do love to grow in thick clumps dont they? How cheering it is to see them!

On New Years Day I saw a couple of yellow crocuses and now they are in several places. The local primary school children planted them. I have two clumps of snowdrops in bloom.
Keep seeing squirrels about - do they not hibernate anymore?
Hi Beryl, what a joy to see crocus in the winter! Beautiful.
I did not know that squirrels hibernated Beryl. I thought they hid acorns and the like ready to dig up during the winter when food would be scarce?

Hello again Ann. Well where i live now we dont have a garden as such as its all paved. We have pots but i havent got round to sorting them yet. Hoping to get them sorted this year though as i love my flowers.
Next door still have geraniums flowering........ Can you believe that! No wonder though as it has been such a mild winter hasent it.
Take care Love Nancyxxxx

Hi Nancy, we too have paving, shingle over weed supressant and bark on rose border and several pots. However, we have a hedge and the bulbs were planted at the base of the hedge.
Yes, I have kept geraniums in flower all winter when the winter has been very mild and they were laid on their side in a sheltered part of my garden.
We are getting larger and larger clumps of snowdrops each day now. Makes one think that Spring is around the corner>
