Spring is definitely here (there) Siris. My neighbour e-mailed me what is blooming in my garden and what blooms I am missing. Naughty girl.

It was cold here this morning 0oC with a stiff frost on the grass till mid morning, but probably not as cold as you. All the Hellebores were hanging their heads.

Oh Amy, we have a garden filled with Spanish bluebells - they are very persistent!!

I think we have finally got shot of the Spanish bluebells, now we have a proper fence we won't get the neighbour's either!!
We had minus 2 here last night, a white over until lunch time, at least it was dry but cold and windy, we really could do with at least ten days of dry weather the borders are still saturated!!

I do not think we had any frost on Vancouver Island (Canada) Siris..... 9-10 Celsius during the day and 7-8 at nights. Lots of rain though. Lots of plants are blooming, according to my neighbour and I am missing it.
Here in Mexico 25-28 Celsius.

I have/had English Bluebells as well. If I come across a bulb, whilst digging in the summer it gets rubbished, impossible to say which is which without the flowers. Some of the bulb are so deep I only manage to get out the stalks, leaving a problem for next year. Maybe when an English one flowers I should pot it, then discard everything else, some hope!
Klahanie, I thought you meant a friend in the Uk, didn't realise you moved between Canada and Mexico. That must be a difference in climates.
