I looked under the Rowan tree today and spotted that the Bluebells are just starting to push through ready for Spring. I'll vote for that. :nod:

Nestling in today's sunshine, beneath the biggest pyrawotsit I spy a clump of daffodils 6 inches tall :clap: !!

Hurrah! I have the first signs but not as tall as yours. :)

It's abso true - the lawn growth is amazing but understandable since January was like early Spring !

My Magnolia will be in bloom very shortly. The buds are bursting and all we want is some nice warm sunshine to finish the job. :nod: :spring:

That's quite amazing, Jacksparrow. Mild winter and all that - no wonder it thinks it's May !!
However, there's a camellia up the road in riotous flower :)

Mulberry 2020 003.JPG
First fuzzy mulberry catkins - dead on time which is surprising considering the warmest winter since Adam was a lad.
Aaaanyway, it matters not because I expect the result to be as before: no fruit :(.

Maybe this year will be the year that it bears fruit. :nod: Alternatively get some silkworms to munch on the mulberry leaves as I'm sure Honest Placi .Inc has a textiles wing that could put the end product to profitable use.
