What Winter...?!

Despite it being 29th December, the unseasonally mild weather means my Small Suburban Garden is beginning to look rather more like spring that it ought to. Why do I have geraniums and lobelias in flower outdoors?

The jasmine, which I savagely chopped back a couple of months ago, has new foliage and still has an abundance of black berries. There's a ton of parsley available for harvesting and although the chives have gone to seed, the mint has reappeared.

As always, the buddleia is in leaf, and the magnolia is now covered in small furry buds. I'm not quite sure why the seasons are all messed up, and I do hope that it won't interfere too much with the insects that I hope to be seeing next spring and summer. I guess that all we can do is wait and see...
