Ce n'est pas un peu tôt ?

VDP has no clue what this pretty shrub is and is therefore wondering if it isn't a wee bit early... The daffodils on Avenue de Paris were out already last Sunday, and that is too early, shriek... Not really surprising when you know we've had the warmest January since 1900.

VDP n'a aucune idée de ce qu'est ce joli arbuste et se demande donc si ce n'est pas un peu tôt... Les jonquilles de l'avenue de Paris commençaient à s'ouvrir dimanche dernier et ça, c'est vraiment trop tôt... Pas surprenant quand on sait que ce janvier fut le plus chaud depuis 1900.

I wish I knew the name of that shrub, it is just gorgeous, and I always enjoy seeing daffodils. But it really is the first week of February. Very early.

Absolument. Vont-ils survivre à un gel?

These are so, so lovely! I wish I knew what it was... Though I too can't believe they're blooming so early! What a strange winter it's been everywhere.

Very pretty and nice to see in the depths of midwinter in Boston where everything is coated with snow.

Wow, that is early...... and very pretty.

I take it as a good sign.
Spring will be here soon.

We have all kinds of spring plants and flowers springing up here too, and last month was apparently the wettest January ever!

Schon Frühling bei Dir?
Egal wie sie heißen, sie sind einfach schön!

I'm amazed that spring has arrived there! We are still very much in winter here.

Lowell said...

Spring is springing up for sure! The warmest January since 1900? I think when we were there it was the coldest June since time began! :)

It's so nice to see all that color.

Re your comment on Ocala: Don't be a "smarty" pants!

Yes, it might be early, but so nice to see some blossoms.

It's gotten warm again here in Berlin too. Today was around 12 degrees. Some of the crocus are starting to come out in my MiL's garden. She is not happy. ;-)

So pretty! No flowers in Virginia yet.

So pretty Ciel, looks like a type of blossom, cherry or apple perhaps?
