First Snowdrop 2010
Our first snowdrop is out in the yard today!!!! Also, green shoots for daffodils and tulips. And little pink beginnings of flowers on a tree, and the large, tightly furled hellebore buds. Plus soft, fuzzy magnolia buds. Spring is starting! Maybe it will still snow one more time, though, like last year after the snowdrops came out?
I took my 20th Meeting Anniversary Purple Tulips (thank you, my dear one, for that colourful surprise last night!) outside for a little walk to make them appreciate the fact that they weren't out there with the remaining bits of snow. And because the natural sunlight makes it much easier to get the right colour in a photo.
