Unseasonable flowers

Here we are, at the beginning of February and we have a number of unseasonal flowers out. Aubretia seem to have some flowers  almost all year round. Until very recently, Gazania were in bloom & as the photos show, a "pink" and kaffir lillies and Calendula.  Elder bushes are already sprouting leaves and Pulmonaria are in full bloom. We only saw our first snowdrops recently and our first crocus a couple of days ago. daffodil bulbs have six inches growth. Only hope there isn't a really cold snap to hit everything back.
