Welcome spring with open arms

There's a definite touch of spring in the air...


Of course the snowdrops are out in force now - though for some time it seemed touch and go whether the daffodils would beat them to it! Even so, the daffodils are hard on their heels in our little patch of the North Devon countryside. Soon even the primroses will be blossoming but, for the time being, it's the hellebores that steal the show in our woodland garden close to the house. And they are absolutely beautiful in their sultry glory. I think hellebores really are one of my top ten favourite blooms.

Enjoy the sunshine!
