Cold and dull today with a sprinkling of snow during the morning, it looks like it might snow again, but hopefully there will not be too much.
Today’s picture is of one of my pink Hellebores; this one is in our largest border. I was looking for Winter Aconites, which grow in the same place, but there is still no sign of them. I think perhaps the squirrels have dug them up, but I doubt they would eat them as I think they are poisonous.
At lunchtime I carried Florence upstairs to allow her to eat from her bowl if necessary, as until now I have had to help her. To my delight, she had been upstairs and activated her bowl herself; it took her forty-eight hours to Dougal’s ten minutes to get used to it, but she has now “graduated” and can use her new bowl properly by herself.
