I am a little bit late in welcoming in 2016, it’s Jan 30th after all but better late than never, I guess. It’s a cold, wintry Saturday and a dusting of snow greeted us this morning. It has disappeared now but I think it might visit us again later as the temperature falls. Regardless of the weather, my hardy little Hellebores are starting to bloom. It’s hard not to feel cheered up by the sight of their gorgeous white flowers nestled against the dark green foliage.
