Something cheering

I know this looks as if it's at the wrong angle, but it's not. The horizontal leaves are last year's crocosmia leaves that haven't been cut back. What's cheering is the hellebore buds. I have several hellebores that flourish in the bed the kitchen sink looks out at and they're the first thing to flower in my garden each year.

M has a saying:
He who says Spring starts on the first warm day has a longer summer than he who says Winter finishes on the last cold one. I daresay we'll have more cold days and who knows, maybe even more snow, but this morning was mild, dry and at times sunny.
