Warm winter means early flowers


Camellia japonica

Translated from Dutch Leids Nieuwsblad of 9 February, on the unusually warm winter:

Also the plants in the botanical garden are sowehat unusual now.

The camellia has never had flowers this early.

The Jasminum nudiflorum‘s blooming is more advanced than usually.

The winter aconites on the hill near the astronomical observatory are like yellow marbles on the ground.

Also the Christmas rose, stinking hellebore, lenten rose, are flowering much earlier than usually. …

They are doing their best to attract the first awake bees of the year for pollination.

New North American bamboo species discovered: here.
