Winter aconite hopefully a prelude to a sunny spring

Allotment meeting this Saturday, quiet one with just Mim and I, planting of some onion sets due to the mild weather. Will have to wait and see how they go. Begun as a lovely day, but soon became rather grey. However a successful planting and excellent to get out in a the fresh air. Also excellent to see the winter aconite (Eranthis) in flower, a relative of the buttercup this is bright and sunny and flowering right now, an excellent hailer to the spring and summer ahead.
