A correspondent writing from Kent, England, under date of January 21 st, says: "Our winter is very different from yours. We have had no frost yet Mignonette and stocks are still in bloom. Wallflowers, polyanthus and wild primrose have been blooming since last October. Snowdrops and crocus of several kinds are in flower, also hepaticas and daisies. Saxifraga Burseriana and Anemone blanda opened their first flowers to-day. Narcissus minor is in bud, and I see that Amaryllis-Belladonna under a warm wall is pushing up a flower spike. The elder and honeysuckle are leafing, so also is Acer Ginnala".
