The sun shone from dawn until dusk. These are warm February days.
Winter aconite was introduced as a garden plant before 1600 and escaped into the wild. A lover of damp woodland, they suit this garden well.
Little bee spent an hour in one bloom and eventually fell asleep inside the flower. We are expecting a frost tonight. I covered the plant with a cloche. Not to protect it, to keep the bee snug and warm until morning :0)
