I've missed the last couple of months of GBBD. January went past without being recorded as there was snow and little else; February because we were on holiday but still there was nothing to record. Looking back to last year's garden photos, both miniature and large daffodils were fully out, Anemone blanda were showing their smiling faces to the world, and the hellebores were at their peak (see my blog title for a photo taken on 15th March last year). My acers were about to break bud.
Not so this year. The cold has put us back a couple of weeks - no daffs are showing any colour yet, and whilst the earlier hellebores are out, some of the slightly later ones have yet to open.
