Apologies for another non-Essex sighting: Ants seen at the weekend (26th Jan 2008) in the kitchen of a friend's house near Canterbury, Kent.

I saw some honey bees foraging on Witch Hazel and Winter Jasmine flowers on Saturday in a garden centre (outside) in Surrey. I have seen no sign of this in my garden in south Essex - anyone else seen any?

Winter Aconite and Common Snowdrops out on 1 Jan 08
Actually this was in Gravesend, some 500m south of Essex.  In a small park near the Thames I was with my family, and we saw both the plants in the title out in full flower, not just one of each but dozens. It was not even sunny! I know these are garden plants, but they were identical to the ones usually seen, ie Galanthus nivalis and Eranthis hyemalis.  I suppose they thought spring was on the way, being in the mild days following Christmas as compared to the rather cold couple of weeks we had just before.
