April Roses

This Iceberg climber has flowered until Christmas some years, but I've never known blooms on it in the third week of April. We inherited it from the previous owners in 1986, and it really enjoys the sun-trap created by the extension we built 15 years ago. Perhaps it's coming out in sympathy with my best beloved's knee, but I suspect it's just the exceptionally early warmth.

Now we've cheated because this house is 3 miles from the South Coast on the edge of the New Forest, and most boating bloggers currently seem to be somewhere north of Oxford. But does anyone else have pictures of something surprisingly early?
