It  is  frosty  here  in  Aberdeen today - and I expect there  will be  more  cold  weather to come  - but  for  us, a  frost  is  not  "late"  until June ! ::)

It,s dull and drizzly here. My camera, a bridge camera, does not like recording actual colours when the weather is dull. 40F in the garden. This is not unusual in our area for the time of year.



A tall species of snowdrop in the front lawn, I don,t know which species.



A short double flowered one.



Helleborus foetidus, must have arrived as a dropped seed.



The first saxifrage to flower.



Viburnum bodnantense "Dawn" still in flower.

Winter aconite.



Clematis cirrhosa, an early flowerer.

My garden does not contain such an abundance of plants that Maggi and Ian have. A song thrush has been singing for a few days so it must be spring.

It is very nice to see spring-like pictures from all! In case someone is missing the real winter though - here's the beginning of February in this part on Ontario, with a fresh round of heavy, clingy snow.
