The winter Honeysuckle has pretty much finished flowering now, and Forsythia is not yet out. But these daffs don't seem to know what a miserable day it is today, and there is even some colour in the wallflowers already. And the Christmas rose is still going.
The Primulas and Hyacinths have pretty much had their day, but there is still time to acknowledge their contribution to the general lifting of spirits.
I have always liked the way the dew collects in droplets at the centre of Lupin leaves, a habit that extends to this tree Lupin that has survived the Winter. And there is pleasure too in anticipation; these Paeony shoots promise fine things to come in a few weeks.
