As the catkins open up and start to release their pollen it looks as though spring is just around the corner. The Hellebores have been in flower for a while and once the old foliage is removed they look stunning with a real splash of colour. Crocus, snowdrops and daffodils are all in full bloom here too. Thank you to Rich Walker for this lovely image.
These Hellebores were photographed by Susan Rushton at Gresgarth Hall . Stunning examples. See https://susanrushton.net/
