Hi Ian and Steve

I've been away so rather late on this thread.

No fear of Honey Fungus - you have a fine crop of Flammulina velutipes, a saprobe which fruits in winter.

Your other fungus is Chondrostereum purpureum.

Reading the last log, i also found the Helleborus planted in north side of my garden are also ahead of 1-2 weeks compared to the south part.  The north side is located between my house and the neighbour's one, with strong wind in a 3m width corridor and i can't explain why the plants start the growth earlier.

In the wild the same happens, the stronger Helleborus are usually in north windy rocks and bloom sometimes 3 weeks before the ones in full sun.

Someone may have an explanation?

In this Bulb Log I travel through time to Ireland, getting a glimpse of a spring to come, then returning to a frozen garden.

How nice picture of Miss Molly in the end. :)
I wouldn't have thought there was so big difference in Ireland and Scotland, but now I see there is. :)

Click the Bulb Log link where the first Erythronium caucasicum of the year joins so many other bulbs enjoying the mild conditions.
