I am sitting at the computer looking at the garden trees swaying gently in the wind. I think that Storm Eunice concentrated her fury in the south and let us off lightly. Although sometimes I wonder whether it is best not to follow these dramatic warnings and just wait for the weather to do its thing - as our forefathers did.
Our snowdrops have put on an excellent show this year and have spread even further than last year. The hellebores are not quite in flower and neither are the daffodils. But I have been buying seeds and am looking forward to getting some tomatoes started on the windowsill.
