Stop stressing that I just started a sentence with ‘and’, it’s fine, I don’t care because at last, I have snowdrops. This tiny little white flower means a lot to me because I can finally believe that the long winter is over and we can start thinking about spring. I have a few patches in my garden and I go in search of them every year. This year they’ve been a few weeks later than usual and I was beginning to worry that I had inadvertently killed them with overzealous weeding last year. I thought that maybe I’d left us permanently in Narnia where it’s always winter, and wondered when it was time to confess that it was all my fault; however, today’s search revealed three little clumps in the garden. Hooray! all I needed to make the final home straight into spring.

It’s always very uplifting when you see the first snowdrops. Love them!
Me too it’s the highlight of late winter.
Sharing these delightfully expressed words. Have decided at last – have them all in the grass, or….don’t weed!
I’m loving the idea of having them in the grass. If I’m organised enough I’ll get some bulbs planted ready for next spring.
