Snowdrops

Snowdrops!

I realize that many of you have already this year had snowdrops bloom in your gardens, but these are the first ones I have seen in East Gwillimbury in 2014 - not in my garden but in some friends' garden. Yep, they pushed their way up through the ice and snow.  And this IS what they looked like this afternoon on the last day of March.  It looks like spring is finally arriving here!

The joke around my area is that spring is broke. It snowed furiously here yesterday.

Dainty flowers but with enough energy to push through and bloom. There must be a message in there somewhere

How pretty these are, and surely a welcome sign of spring. Ours are just about at this point too. Now hopefully the snow will stay away so that they can actually bloom!

Happy day to you.

I really amore the persistence of these beautiful plants. A little snow and ice isn't going to keep them from announcing their presence.
