I’ve been watching out for the first snowdrops for a few weeks and saw them last week. They are quite plentiful under the trees on the other side of the Bronie Burn.
It always surprises me that these little jewels are found in fairly damp and dark places – but of course that’s what helps them to stand out and be seen.
One of our plans this year for the garden is to get some snowdrops planted at the foot of the trees at the back of the Bothy – hoping they will love the location and bloom next year for the enjoyment of our guests.
I love snowdrops for their beauty – but also for their toughness in being the first to stick their heads above the cold ground to declare that winter will pass!
