There are lots of things to cheer us up.
On the Isle of Wight I saw a beautiful Mimosa tree.
In my own garden the Hamamelis is out . So are the Cyclamens.
Also, I have a pink rose by my front door!
Inside I have a collection of bulbs including amaryllis, daffodils and hyacinths,
We can all look forward to the New Year ahead if we think about the pleasures that await us in the garden.
