What is in bloom for you, now?
On my trip to the compost heap today, with our kitchen waste bin, I noticed the first snowdrop flower lurking in the grass, ready to open. I also have mahonia, jasmine, witchazel, hellebores, Japanese quince and a hebe in flower. I don't have any heathers these days, other than a white one in a planter.

Variegated Aubretia making a lovely show outside the window. Out of "season" but I don't mind. Smile

Loads of winter flowering Heathers.

Grevillia Prostrata stealing the show in a trough section.

Lweisias keep on flowering on odd plants.

And I've just installed a limestone Dolmen with two large boulders. (My very own Dolmen Smile .Unfortunately I didn't have a body to put under it. Sad )

No golden treasure either, i'll bet!
My lewisias gave up flowering a couple of weeks ago.

At the moment not even the winter heathers are in bloom! Though I do have some very sad looking roses. Sad

I'm hoping everything is just building itself up to explode out of the ground in a few weeks. Until then I'll have to bide my time working on the family tree.
