Winter flowers

After a couple of weeks of rain and grey, but mild, days we've had two frosty nights (-2 C) and glorious sunny mornings.

The mild weather has brought forward the spring bulbs which are now pushing through and the robins and blackbirds are singing like they think its spring already.

There are flowers in the garden, mostly winter bloomers like mahonia, winter jasmine and heather and the rhubarb is sprouting nicely.
