I have been cheered by some happy things in the garden, so though I would share them. My snowdrops are only just starting to bud up, so more on them when there is more to see. In the meantime, here are two hellebores. Hello Ruby above, growing in a pot near to the back door.
This is Hello White Pearl, also in a pot. I am really pleased to see them again and perhaps I would like a couple more... They seem to be coping admirably with the frosts at night, so I am looking forward to seeing those flowers. In other news, I received a new plant today, which I needed to buy to cheer myself up, after a pretty rubbish week at work last week (that's my excuse, anyway!)
