Snowdrops are up!
My husband called me while he was out in the yard the other day to come out to see something! My little patch of snowdrops Galanthus nivalis were up and in bloom! I didn't plant them - the original owners of our land did but I do look forward to them coming up each year. I love that they bloom in February when nothing else is up although my daffodils are shooting up green leaves nearby. The lovely snowdrops give me hope that spring is sooner than I think!
They grow on a steep hillside that was wet and muddy when I took these so I apologize for the blur! I was trying not to roll down into the road! It has been a week of fog, drizzle and clouds but the birds and squirrels don't seem to mind!
