      I was lucky enough to visit a garden open under NGS today - Gelli Uchaf in Carmarthenshire. Snowdrops in abundance, glorious daphne bholua scenting the whole garden in the sunshine, cyclamen etc.

        More hellebores opening up - the double one didn't flower last year and I'd pretty much forgotten it was even there, so that was a bonus!
