These cheerful little flowers have been smiling at me for a few weeks now (I can see them from the kitchen window).
The snowdrops that a friend bought for me last year from Anglesey Abbey are just starting to flower,
as are the iris reticulata (although I think something, possibly earwigs, has been nibbling them!).
There are hellebores next to the almost faded seed heads of echinops
and in the front garden the cerinthe seedlings appear to be taking over!
But the best flower at the moment has to be that of Lonicera Fragrantisima (winter flowering honeysuckle). The scent is strong and heady but the flowers are so tiny and delicate.
It's my favourite winter shrub.
