Signs of hope

I went food shopping this morning and got soaked in a sudden cloudburst. Needless to say, there hasn’t been a drop of rain since I got home. The weather may be grim but there are signs of life in the garden,

Pot of daffodils. That’s just one; there are several more. Lovely fat buds on the hellebores but they don’t photograph well. I expect there are snowdrops showing but I’m not prepared to squelch across the marsh which was once the lawn in order to find out.
