We have a few things with new leaves opening up. Which is not normal for this time of the year. Its normally still very icey with the odd bit of snow.

Lovely.. (the ice is so nice)
If it's ice, it's nice. If it's hot, it's not.

Very pretty. I cut some chives yesterday, the earliest ever; not as pretty but very tasty.

My daffodils look ready to bloom - very early isn't it?

We’ve had some for out in the garden for about a week in Berkshire, and those at the Eurotunnel terminal at Folkestone were out on 31st January, which surprised me, it was very windswept.

Our daffs have been flowering for about a week now. Too early.

Well I'm not complaining! The almond trees have flowered without getting frosted, the daffs are beautiful and haven't been spoilt by rain (so far). The Magnolias are flowering already, the spring flowers last much longer when the weather's cool and dry 8-) and it's wonderful just to be able to get out and work in the garden at last!
Be alert.....your country needs lerts!

It sounds lovely, Noisette, enjoy it!

After a day and a night of rain on already waterlogged clay soil (and another day of rain forecast for today) we now have several flooded borders - worse than we’ve had for years, since I did more soil improvement.

But at least the flowers and chives have stood up to the rain and the wind pretty well. I can still get at shrubs etc to cut back or trim but not do anything else just now.
