An extremely early season here in Marlborough, possibly due to the much greater than average rainfall over winter. Looking back through my photos the 1WP pictured below was flowering on the 20th of September in 2015.

Attached are 2 Pink Cosmos seedlings that are flowering now.

    Lovely flowers Lachlan. It is very early in the Waikato as well, many varieties are three weeks ahead.

    The Northern Daffodil Club early show is held this evening , I am sure that there will be a big range of flowers present.

    Very nice Lachlan, nothing out down here yet but a week of warmer weather forecast will promote things hopefully
