In the garden: what’s out?

The first hellebore plant to flower.

The morning was dry and sunny so I went outside to do some tidying up. As a result, my brown bin is nearly full, my legs ache and parts of the garden look better than they did before. There are a few flowers to be seen.

Sarcocca growing in a pot.

Violas in a trough; this one has been nibbled.

Wild-looking crocus which has suddenly sprung up in the grass.

There are masses of snowdrops, quite a few primroses, a viburnum which you’d never notice if it didn’t flower in winter, pulmonarias everywhere and the winter cherry just starting. It’s such a pity I can’t take decent photographs outside at the moment.
