All of ours seem OK. I got some in, a while back. The sun's been out, ever since. :P

The Hosta's died-back, though.

We still haven't had a frost - there is a rainbow of colour still out there! Our nasturtiums are still flowering; a lovely splash of orange-yellow. I also have red crocosmia, lilac hebes and a pink rose in bloom out there. The bay tree  (it's huge - about 15ft tall!) is flowering (tiny cream flowers), the campanula still has a couple of blue flowers and the ericas are very purple.

I have a suspicion the first frost will zap the lot! :-\

Our Campanulas are even attracting bees!

Some daffodils are up 4" already.

It's all very odd. It's like a spring day, here.

Set to change at the end of the week, though, apparently.

It's a bit grimbly (as they say, up here) today.

The birds are all in, fattening themselves up. :)

My anemones are looking lovely and my violas

But something has been digging in my pots. Thrown slate everywhere and made a right mess

Could be rats, but I think a bird might be more likely

We have't had an air frost here yet, so we still have leaves on the fig tree, roses on the climbing rose, penstemons in flower... and the primulas are in full bloom! It was 17c a couple of days ago!!
We live in a small close where the gardens are protected by woods at the rear and fog in the river valley on old mornings (we're 30 yards from the riverbank... luckily about 15ft higher and it's tidal here so it never floods us out), so our microclimate lets us grow Mediterranean plants - Figs, peaches, palm trees, aloes, etc. This road looks like unless there's a frost on the ground. And we've been here nearly 5 years and never had snow!
