February 2020 that is.  These photos were all taken on 16th February last year.  After a mild winter there were still a few marigolds left as early spring bulbs were coming into flower.  This year, some snowy days and very cold, frosty nights have warned spring to wait a while longer.



There are some hellebores in flower in the garden and a few crocuses peeping through the mud left by the melting snow.  The weather has turned quite mild now so the early bulbs should be catching up soon.
