The third week of February was milder, but wetter and windier.
The crocuses opened up again during the rare appearance by the sun. They now lie battered and sodden.
The snowdrops fared well, though they are still reticent to open up. This one was brave though.
The holly leaved hellebore also managed to shake off the rain.
The single primrose flowering has so far survived the downpours.
I was fortunate enough to manage to get a photograph of one of the long tailed tits on the fatball feeder.
The lilac buds are developing nicely.
