Snowdrops

Nature’s calendar is punctuated by significant happenings  –  the first lambs of the year, buds on trees and shrubs, pussy willows, bluebells, the return of swallows, the sound of the first cuckoo in Spring, and so on.  But for me, the most eagerly awaited sight is the flowering of the first snowdrops.  This small, seemingly frail plant never ceases to amaze.  Even during severe winters it will somehow find its way through rock hard soil to lift our spirits and, with its coy, pristine flowers,  remind us that Spring will soon be here  –  well, eventually!
