Jonquils? Not even a Bronze medal!

I must say my jonquils have been well and truly put to shame by Chloe and Calidore. Mine are 7cm green spikes. Not in the race at all. Still, they are in a fairly neglected garden (waterwise) and I'm sure there must be jonquils flowering in some Canberra gardens.

Here we usually look for the first Prunus to flower, generally late June, as an indicator of approaching Spring. What fools we are, with the 3 coldest months of the year still to come.

By the way, ShellyC if your sister still can't knit, you could send her home and let her mother teach her. I did it once, I'm sure I could do it again.
