At the start of a new year we usually hope that things will get better. The last few years have not been good for many folk- healthwise and economically, to name but two. I’m sure you can add more.


This photograph I took last January. Snowdrops are flowers that always bring hope for me. When we moved here I couldn’t believe how many snowdrops we saw in the woods, alongside the verges and in gardens. I had never seen an area with so many. In the depths of winter, in January, they bring the promise of spring, a light that shines on dark days.
