Something for nothing

If you grow hellebores, you'll always find a little cluster of seedlings around them. I've had no success transplanting these, so I wait until they flower in situ, to see if they're any good. I've had my eye on a particular bud on a tiny plant and today it was open.

Better than most, I think.

So far this year, all the daffodils for the house have come from the garden. Yesterday at the market daffs were four bunches for a pound, so how could I resist?

More pictures here in the gallery.
Edit: duh, wrong gallery. It's right for March now.
