With the promise of some sunshine today I decided to carry out some much needed work in the garden.
The massed bells of Lecucojum vernum (aka 'Spring Snowflake) were dancing in the light breeze.
While I had a break from digging up a patch of lawn the opportunistic Mr Blackbird decided it was a good time to root around for a meal.
He made quick work of locating a number of worms while occasionally stopping to check what I was doing!
I'm pleased I made the effort earlier in the year to remove many of the large leaves on the Hellebore's which are now putting on a glorious show.
Elsewhere around the garden there is plenty of colour from the miniature Prunus, Hyacinths, Narcissus and Scilla siberica.
