Lonicera fragrantissima
Mahonia aquifolium
Rose (Britannia, Bowled Over)
Viburnum tinus "Lisa Rose"

Bomarea sp.
Colletia paradoxa
Correa (Dusky Bells, Poorinda Mary)
Grevillea (X semperflorens, rosmarinifolia, victoria, lanigera "Mount
Tamboritha")
Hardenbergia violacea "Happy Wanderer"
Lapageria rosea

Dianthus ("Oscar" x2, Sweet William)
Helleborus (Madame Lemonnier, + one unnamed)
Primrose

In pot/box/basket - Bacopa, Gazania, Lobelia, Osteospermum, Pelargonium,
Verbena

Final flower just closed:
Crinodendron patagua

Although it has been pretty mild, I'm surprised at how much of the
tender stuff is still in flower here (south central Hampshire). We are
expecting a frost tonight and perhaps for the next couple of days. I'll
bet the bedding/pot plants will be hit, but expect there will still be a
flower or two on the most sheltered ones.

I'm sure that Charlie and Chris will be doing a lot better in
"equatorial" Cornwall!

Happy New Year!

Jeff

Fatsia japonica
fuchsia Mrs Popple
rose "Bright as a button" marigolds
seversl hebes
single white camellia
purple hellebore
several schizostylis
small cyclamen in outdoor pots
daphne bholua Jaccqueline Postill

The latter is the glory of the garden at the mooment, 6ft tall and 5ft
wide, covered in flowers scenting that corner of the garden

It's been a very mild winter. So far we've only had one light frost,
just enough for a thin skein of ice on the pond.

Chaenomeles x superba "Crimson and gold"
Viburnum farreri
Jasminum nudiflorum

That's it. Though there are berries on Danae racemosa, Cotoneaster
simonsii (I think) and (now rather shrivelled) Berberis vulgaris.

Nick Maclaren.

Muscari armeniacum (or 'Heavenly Blue' - I don't know which has persisted)
Galanthus nivalis
Jasminum nudiflorum
Malva verticillata
Sidalcea 'Rosebud'
probably a Fuchsia (it was in flower a few days back, and there's been
nothing to stop it)

The plant that surprised me while I was out walking this afternoon was
Anemone coronaria. Other things seen around recently were Aurinia
saxatilis, Viburnum tinus, Lamium maculatum, Erigeron karvinskianus,
Erigeron glaucus, Calendula officinalis, Centranthus ruber, Cytisus
(?scoparius), Mahonia x media, Primula, Viola x wittrockiana, and
whatever else that I've forgotten.

Amongst the more tender things still hanging on with flowers here are
some sempervivums and pelargoniums in a hanging baskets. The last few
flowers are still going on centranthus ruber in protected spots and
calendulas are still going great guns with a fine display of flowers.

Daffodils and snowdrops are well advanced but so far none are out.

This is in sunny North Yorkshire where plenty of weeds are still
growing, flowering and setting seed too. Last few mild days seems to
have brought quite a few things back into flower. Looks like they are in
for a shock tonight though when a hard frost is predicted.

Only things in flower in my garden are some winter pansies in
tubs, primulas (that seemed to burst back into life in mid-Dec,
and snowdrops. Those under a magnolia tree - I was very slow
(or too lazy) to clear the leaves of the magnolia and when |I
did the snowdrops were well up and have been in flower (just)
for about a week.

Surprise yesterday when we walked along the river in the frosty
sunshine, there were daffodils well out in flower - although
only one or two in each clump, which I thought was a bit odd.
