From Sam Knill-Jones, Totland:

Roses have been in full bloom on Christmas Day at Totland.

I had a pink rose out in full bloom in my garden on Christmas Day and my cousins, who live at the bottom of Moons Hill, also had several roses our in their garden.

Furthermore, there were daffodils that were fully out in Spinfish, Freshwater.

This very mild December has been responsible for these sightings.
