A sign of Spring

A drift of snowdrops

There’s another major cold snap ongoing. No snow, thankfully, but a hard frost every morning meaning I have to de-ice and scrape the car before I go into work. But, although most of my garden is either dormant or sulking in the cold, there is one welcome sign that Spring is on its way. The previous owner of the cottage was clearly a galanthophile, as there are many hundreds of snowdrops which have naturalised in the flower beds underneath the front wall. And indeed (though it’s a bit hard to see in this snap) along the top of the wall too. They don’t seem to have minded the recent snow at all. It’s nice to see a sign of life in the garden.
