Early risers

There are clear, cool days in February when everything seems right. The sun shines, January’s darkness is gone – light begins to stretch beyond working hours (if you happen to knock off, like I do, at 5:30)

And the garden’s at its freshest.

Russian snowdrops have been out for some time now, not just in the sunshine but also braving January’s gales.

The year’s first tidy-up in the garden is the best!

Spring is a long slog full of setbacks and broken promises. But I have to admit, it has its moments.
