March 1 Garden update

The Winter has been very wet, but also very warm.  I don't think we've had a serious ground frost, although there have been a few nights with air frost and ice on the car windscreen in the morning.   The garden flowers don't know what to do with this, and so there is a mix of blooms in the garden of flowers that I would expect flower sequentially rather than all at once.

Generally, I would expect first Snowdrops, then Daffs and Crocus, and then the biennials like Wallflowers, to be followed by the annuals and perennials.  (Exceptions apply of course.)  The snowdrops have finished, but the Daffs are out at the same time as, for example, Aubretia, Rosemary and Wallflowers.   It makes for a nice display now, but I think that the Spring proper is going to be sparse.  Perhaps Summer will come early to make up for it.

Come to think of it, I don't remember too many frosts over our way.
