Spring has sprung!

How can I be miserable about the cold weather when I have these in my garden.
The first signs of spring... Tuesday's weather was warm and sunny and I was able to do some tidying up in the garden and tucked away under some dried fern fronds were these little beauties.
At last some real signs that the winter is on its way out.. sorry Australia and New Zealand but yours is on its way. At least you won't have the snow as we have had this winter. These have reminded me I have a cross stitch chart of snow drops some where, that I stitched years ago for a friend. I think I'll search it out and stitch it again! It will be some where in my stash, I wonder if I will be able to find it???
Happy Days every one..

Your snowdrops are lovely Chris. we just don't seem to be able to grow them in our garden, will have to cross stitch some instead.

Your snowdrops are beautiful, I'm ready for spring as well. Keeping my fingers crossed for you, on finding your chart.

Lovely!!! Very nice to see, especially as spring doesn't get going in my part of the US until mid-April. :(

Your snowdrops are lovely. I can't grow them - not for the want of trying. I hope you find the chart.

Spring hasn't quite sprung yet but it's creeping forth. Lovely snowdrops - I think the mice have eaten mine!
I like your Chit Chat group too - what an achievement :-)

What a beautiful group of snowdrops, something I miss from UK, never seen them here in Lazio.

We are still in a snowy deep freeze and will be till the end of April. Nothing is planted till the end of May in case it's lost to frost.
Your snowdrops are lovely!!
