I noticed yesterday that at least two of my Potentillas are showing buds. Now it is going to get colder, but I will cover them up to be safe. I have a Prunus mume that should be in flower soon, spring is coming.
It will be tricky if we get a sudden cold, so safe storage on those days is recommended. Hassel is showing early blooming around the neighbourhood here. And some deciduous buds are moving. Way too early.
