First plants at the beginning of February already, you wonder? And yes, there are quite many plants flowering already. The hazel was flowering at the beginning of January when we had some sunny days and since than winter did not really come. There were several days with nice sunshine and rather high temperatures of around 10°C. Those temperatures make plants think it is spring already and to be honest, also me :). I have to remind myself lately quite often that there could still be some really cold days coming. We humans have not so big problems adapting to this as plants and insects do.
