Snowdrop time [Feb. 21st, 2017|09:14 pm]

[Tags|, ]

I was beginning to feel as if I never left the house. This isn't the case: I was at the pool yesterday morning, for example. But drive there, five minute walk across the bridge, swim, five minutes walk back, drive home and all before breakfast - no, it really doesn't feel as if I've been out. There's plenty to do here, and no particular reason to go out, but this morning I decided it was time, assembled a short shopping list (olive oil spread, cold cream, birthday cards, lunch) and set off. I took the path down through the old graveyard, just in case the snowdrops were out, and yes, they were:

Snowdrops I

Snowdrops II

Re: spring is coming!

I agree that crocuses are the first flowers of spring - snowdrops are all the more welcome for being winter flowers (the clue's in the name!).

Re: spring is coming!

But I love all the colours of crocuses (not to mention the saffron connection!),

I love snowdrops, but so far on mainland Estonia there is ice on ground (my sister, who lives on island Saaremaa, has already started some spring tasks in her garden)

We've had a very mild winter so far - but snowdrops mean the end of winter, not the start of spring!
