not blooming, exactly, but things that shouldn't be are already in bud...the rhodis are amass, as is the lilac and flowering currant hedge.  The forsythia's going great guns and in the veg. border the blackcurrants are starting regrowth...

Will this all end in tears, I wonder ??? :-/

Knowing the English climate more than likely.

I had lots of oriental poppies start flowering again, got to the stage of big buds and then the first real frost came, now they are sad and dead!

Me too too.

Our mild climate does strange things to the plants in the garden.

Until I brought them in for winter I had half hardy fuschias in flower alongside winter jasmine in full bloom!

And yes I have a poppy trying to flower (counted about 6 buds) nothing doing yet. Too cold/damp probably.

cant remember now but last Christmas day there were quite a few flowers out in the garden that should not have been.  Given the strange autumn we've had I will be interested to see what is out come thursday.

Avast there Alishka, while I was up the lottie Saturday afternoon I noticed my Blackcurrant bushes were budding, as were others on the plot.  I took the precaution of wrapping some netting around them in case we get a frost, but I suppose keeping them warm might well encourage them to grow even quicker.  Roll in the spring.
