In recent winters it has been normal to find quite a few flowers in bloom on New Year’s Day, but this year even the hellebores have barely got their buds above ground level, so I was astonished to see this little cluster of Rosa banksia flowers high up on the wall. Late spring and early summer is when it normally flowers so its clock is well and truly out of sync.
