Leucojum vernum v. carpaticum was thoroughly unfazed by the -7c a few nights ago.

The double Galanthus nivalis area, again untouched but the tommies were pretty much cleaned out though new flowers are coming.

 Viburnum x bodnantense Dawn, a great early flowerer for the coast.  Strange it is late this year, also puzzling as it was showing colour in December and we were certain the winter's cold would spoil the bloom this year.

Crocus Cream Beauty in a bed but how does it get into the lawn as well?

The plants are doing really well now though they must be confused by the changes in the weather, 3C and hail yesterday, 12C today.

At the risk of being more than usually anal, could the thread be re-named as Northern Hemisphere in the interests of consistency and to make future searching easier? If so, thanks.
