Spring flowers are always welcome! (But as I mentioned in another thread I am glad it still is a few months away!)

Although I also experience mild winters (not as mild as yours though Dave) I couldn't grow plants like that in December because the level of light is too low.

So many good plants flowering in Australia and New Zealand already - makes you wonder what will be left for the "real Spring"  .....Yikes!

Yes, it's always interesting to see what's in flower for the various Flower Shows! The next FCHS Show is on September 6 and 7 - some years there can be many less daffodils - either being too early or too late!

Here are some pics from our recent AGS Vic Group meeting,
