Tribute to tenacity

The sun came out this afternoon. It didn't last long, but it was still welcome and I took the opportunity to nip down to the very bottom of my garden to see what I could find. In a small number of weeks this area, over-shadowed by the big sycamore tree, will come into its own as the bulbs show through, stretch towards the light and then open up in a glorious show of colour. It's the time when my garden is at its very best and I can't wait.

Meanwhile, there are one or two interesting remnants from the autumn past - if you look closely enough. This tiny leaf retained it's autumnal golden-brown and survived the wind, rain and snow just long enough to end up being a photograph on here!
