Here is a daffodil.

It's here as a reminder that, although we are travelling deeper into the cold and dark, on the other side lies spring. That there are countless bulbs under the earth in gardens, on road verges, in wild places, parks and pots which are even now producing new roots; preparing for the day when they will break the surface again as spikes of green before blazing forth in triumphant yellow.

Hold fast, hope, and know that spring will come again.
