Good question. Here on Long Island, now is the time for crocus to make their appearance.

Only an inch here, but the roads were very icey this morning.

In London, crocus and snowdrops flower in January, primrose from January to February, daffodils from February to March.

Looks like you are a good month ahead of me on everything you mentioned.

We've had a cold Feb this year though, so I wouldn't be surprised if things are delayed slightly. Only a couple of days ago did we get above 50F the first time this month!

The cherry, almond and plum blossoms usually arrive in March, when do they happen there?

I think it's early April for the DC area, then my area two weeks later. (on average)

I can see the emerging hyacinths and tulips...50-60 this week, no freezing temps expected...these are in pots so likely this is why they are ahead of usual blooming time here...

I was there last March and was so thrilled to see millions of daffodils in early March. Wild primroses were everywhere and there were a lot of colorful ones in pots all along the streets too. Back here, they had a major snowstorm.

My daffodils got fooled last week and started to try to come up. So did the hyancinths. They're both in full south facing sun, sheltered by the front of the building. Last night it snowed 5" but I covered them up with the welcome mat from the front step and whatever else I could find. Will see if they're still there tomorrow.

I noticed my pear and plum trees are blooming now. Cherry laurel is starting to flower as well.
