The next wave of flowers

After the snowdrops, primroses and winter aconites, the next things to appear are Hellebores, also known as Lenten or Christmas roses. They are a lovely flower but difficult to photograph since their blooms droop. But we have a sunken garden at work with Hellebores on the banks, so with a bit of manipulation, I have a few shots.
There's also a picture of one of the first daffodils to open here, which was still a bud last time I looked on Wednesday - everything happens so quickly when the days get longer.
