I had a lovely spring-like amble around the garden this morning. This is what is in flower for me - I wonder is it different 'down the country'?
Bergenias, daffodils, crocus, primula, jasmine n, chaenomeles, hellebores, pulmonaria, snowdrops, witchazel, sarcococca, mahonia.
Some are only beginning to flower, others are in full bloom and yet others are nearly finished.

Acacia Baileyans Purpurea is absolutely stunning with its yellow flowers (although I normally don't like yellow apart from Gorse.)

Some kabscia Saxifrages in flower already. (spelling?)

Grevillea Prostrata

Heather

Lewisias (Do they ever stop flowering?)

Crocus.

Yucca Gloriosas

Sarcococca (or however you spell it)

vibernum Tinus

Wallflowers

That's all I can think of right now.

None of my lewisias are flowering. One persisted well into November, though. Of those I planted into my stone wall, the largest died - I think the roots got damaged too much. The smaller ones seem ok and hopefully will enjoy their new location as they acclimatise.

Lewisias must be the most difficult plant to grow here. Anyone who look at mine say "Oh, we tried those but they rotted away."

I've lost two recently to the dreaded "Orange Mush." I find the local plants Pennywort (or Wallwort) love growing in the Lewisia beds. Their leaves are getting to the size of Rhubarb ones !
