It might be a small start, but the humble Periwinkle is very welcome…a splash of a blue gem in a dark corner.
The Hellebore’s or Christmas Rose are still doing well having battled against rain and winds for many months…showing the signs of wear but still putting on a brave face
The Skimmia is now bursting into flower, its pin like buds that unfold into a dainty flower that all create larger head, a magnet in the late afternoon sun for Hoverflies and Worker Bees. All good signs that we may well be heading for Spring…
What a change from this morning, dull grey and drizzle….it might be late in the day arriving, but I will count this as a bonus.
Stay Safe …. Be Kind…. Look After Each Other
