Oh oh oh that field of snowdrops makes me weak at the knees.

(Just having a bit of a catch up and enjoyed the Napoleonic lesson further down the page. Have you read Sandra Gulland's Josephine B. trilogy? )

I'm here - patiently waiting for my bluebells (they must be a cousin of the snowdrop)...

The church - the grey of the church and the white of the snowdrops - what a beautiful photo..

Oh. I can barely wait until my first snow drops appear. Finally this morning we were frost free.

They've all really come up over the last week - when we went away at the start of half term there were only a very few, and when we arrived home the woods and gardens were full!

The finest of carpets. They are so full of hope.

These remind me of the Bachelor's Buttons in my Mom's garden.
