            Hello all, first proper post on this forum.

            A pretty lean period up here on the edge of the Peak District but there's still one or two flowers which lift the spirits.

            Winter Honeysuckle deliberately planted next to where we park the car. The scent is absolutely gorgeous.

            Although not flowering profusely at the moment, there isn't a month when my wife's Wallflowers don't produce a bloom.

            We don't have many Hellebores but this recent acquisition - 'Christmas Carol' - has been flowering in a pot since just before the big day.

            And of course the obvious January highlight - Snowdrops. Here fighting their way through the Persicaria bed.
