It's been a long, long winter up here in the frozen north....but today the sun came out and tempted us to the window....
In amongst the carpet of white snowdrops, there are some little yellow heads appearing, winter aconites;
The daffodils are slowly but surely emerging from hibernation;
And there is a scattering of fragile mauve crocuses;
The hellebores are waking up too;
Mother Nature is putting on her glad rags and getting ready for another glittering premiere;
