The three witch hazels in the Skincare bed are in full bloom,
witch hazels

again, after their too early showing in October. In the Witches bed, Imbolc is marked by a single ox-lip,
rarer relative of the cowslip, and used to treat coughs and bronchitis.

Rhubarb is pushing up bright red stalks,

and the oats are green and strong – just waiting for the light and warmth to draw them upwards.

If you look closely, everywhere, you can believe that Spring is coming!
