Tulips



In the garden, snowdrops, hellebores, primroses, pulmonaria and viburnum are all flowering. Catkins are out. No chance of a photo, though, as there's a bitterly cold wind and the early sunshine has given way to the usual gloomy cloud cover. These cheerful tulips were on sale in Waitrose this morning at two bunches for a fiver. Who could resist?
