A trip into the garden after all the wet weather cheered me up. The daffs are pushing through, primroses are showing a few flowers, some struggler's from last summer are still trying their best. The most welcome sight was the hellebores starting to open. I sacrificed one to take indoors and enjoyed a pleasant session.
