Spring, or is it?

This winter has been one of the warmest on record, but now it is officially spring the weather has become wintery and we are having frost and snow in some parts of Great Britain.

The earlier warm winter has confused the plants in the garden, with several kinds that usually turn up one after another are all in bloom at once. In fact, our daffodils which are usually around in March were in bloom with the snowdrops in February with the crocuses arriving after the daffodils, instead of before.

Only the Bluebells (top of the picture) have not yet come into flower, but they are well advanced and will not be far behind.
