No snowdrops here yet, but my yellow hellebore is brimming with buds, and my little pot of Katherine Hodgkin irises are flowering. Now yesterday's gales have finally remove that last leaves, I can see next door's hazel tree is festooned with catkins.Even the seed potatoes arrived in the garden centres early this year!
Snap – re the snowdrops!I must get up to the allotment soon – I was going to collect some Nasturtium seeds for an early salad sowing, but your photo has me wondering whether I'll be collecting some leaves instead.
Is number three a nicotiana ? If so it has arrived much too early at the party along with the strawberry too 🙂
oh my goodness! We're a long way from blooms, the ground is hard as a rock!

BST: Your yellow hellebore sounds lovely, and I must get myself some Katherine Hodgkins soon – had some in my last garden and thought they were a little weird but exquisite.Hi VP – my nasturtiums have simply never stopped flowering. They aren't even looking like they're going to die down. I wonder if they'll just carry on into next year now?!Anna – yes it's Nicotiana mutabilis, still flowering its socks off after several months. I dug some up to overwinter in the greenhouse but clearly needn't have bothered!Tammy – my guess is you're not in the UK then 😀 A bit of me is thinking we need a good freeze now – the other bit is worrying it's on its way next month just as I'm sowing my seeds….
