I took my kitchen compost container for a walk down the garden to the compost heap this morning. On the way I noticed my first snowdrop in flower - with a few others ready to open up. Daffs are up too, of course, and the crocuses. It's good to see the new flowers beginning as the old ones fade - the cyclamen are going over now, though there are still plenty of flowers on the jasminium nudiflorum.
Further investigation revealed the buds swelling on the witchazel and flowers ready to open on the mahonia. This year I'll try using the mahonia fruit, now I know it's edible and I might try the fruit on the Amelanchier, too. It will be nice to have some early garden produce. Later I might even try the berries from the Berberis Darwinii. I've heard they are popular in the Middle East.
