Snowdrop

SnowdropWe have experienced a two day reprieve from winter’s cold weather.  Today I walked up a slope and discovered the snowdrops are blooming.  In fact, some of them have been blooming a while because they had dead blossoms already.  I got “up close and personal” with the blooms and sniffed.  They do have a fragrance — small but noticeable.

Seeing the blooming snowdrops gave me hope for Spring and I looked for other signs of Spring — like asparagus shoots (okay, I know it’s really much too early for asparagus).  I did find the garlic growing well (considering the winter) . . .

And the yarrow has tiny shoots of green feathers . . .

Thank goodness for little bits of green and little blossoms.
