It's been awhile since I featured pictures from my garden. Last week I spotted my first garden flower for 2016, a snowdrop; the following day, a patch of crocus; and the day after that, clumps of them.
My snowdrops don't make much of a show, so I trotted over to the next door neighbors’, who are fortunate enough not only to have an incredibly sweet dog, but also a huge patch of these spring harbingers:
It was only a week or two that I kept stopping to stare in wonder at the huge (up to 6mm across) snowflakes falling on me—so beautiful. Today, singing birds, warmth to work outside, budding trees, and spring bulbs. I really do feel very fortunate to be able to enjoy these simple pleasures.
Much of the snow for winter’15 actually fell in February of 2016. I quite enjoyed it: I was afraid we weren't going to get much. And to be sure, there's no guarantee we won't get more!
