Snowdrops and Spring!

Yesterday when the wind was howling and the rain was not too far away I was gazing out my window at the garden when I spotted this jewel in the wilderness! Snowdrops in flower!I could not believe my eyes,especially as I cannot remember even planting them in this spot or when but I must have!I have always admired drifts of snowdrops in other peoples gardens but thought they were so small as to hardly bother with them but how wrong I was! I decided to snap this one before the wind and rain take it away !
Plenty more to come!


  1. Wow! So pretty to see when there's so much snow on the ground here.
    Hope you're having a great weekend!!

  2. There is hope that Spring might be on the way! The first snowdrops are somehow very comforting to see.

  3. I just saw my first snow drops today and then log on here to see you have them in flower!
    I have one solitary yellow crocus which I intended to take a photo of when I came back from the school today but it was bucketing down rain by then.

  4. I love surprise plants! Spring is such an exciting time.

  5. I found your post through Cuisine Kathleen and I had I'm LOVING see some spring flowers emerging. We are STILL SO BURIED IN SNOW here, I don't know When Our gardens are going to wake up!!! Thank you for the peek at spring. I would Love if you would visit me too. I always keep my Kettle On for tea!
    Have a wonderful week,

  6. Hi everyone who responded to this post! I am LOVING my snowdrops at the moment,they are even better now than in the original photo! My camera is again giving me a headache,these digital cameras! Just read this evening on our regular gardeners column that you should divide snowdrop plants after flowering into new ground. Hopefully will be able to post new photos soon in the meantime happy gardening to everyone!

  7. Snowdrops can be so exciting as they tell us that spring is on it's way. So pretty and delicate too.
    Hope all well with you
