I've got snowdrops coming through really well now, with their little white buds about 1/1/2'' above the ground, and two daffs are in bud, but I think that's because those are near the house. The bluebells are starting to push through as well.
The birds are certainly getting more lively now, there are two robins in the garden, in fact they've been together for a couple of weeks now.

It's great to hear that there is signs that spring is on the way. We have the bluetit which has taken up residency in the tree and i'm sure will pair up soon.
That's a lovely photo of the rose Sue :cool4:

:wow: that is early/late for a rose to be in flower Sue, especially when you think of the very hard penetrating frosts that we've all had. It must have its own central heating system. :giggle:

It's nice to see the buds on your pear tree Di. Fingers crossed, that you'll have more than one pear this year.

Good photo of the roses Sue (some of them don't seem to die off at all). Your tree is getting ready Di, hopefully you will get a good crop this year.

We have got bulbs coming up in the front garden, daffodils, I think.

:wow: that was great to see that ladybird Cazza, let's hope that it survives the winter.

Great photos Tabatha.

I've already put this photo up on 'my garden' thread, as I forgot about this one :doh: so I've put it up on here as well, and when I manage to get a photo of the snowdrops that are out now, I'll put those on here
This is a very lonely daffodil, but it has a friend in the same pot that will be out in a few days.:girlygiggle:

That really is an early daffodil Marg. Thanks for posting.

I actually saw two robins together on Sunday, so I wonder if they could be a mating pair! :robin: :robin:

Well done Marg. A nice crop of snow drops and a violet. That is really good for January.

:thanks: for posting

It is very interesting to see what is coming up at the moment. I just hope this next cold snap doesn't finish everything off.
