The Snowdrops are out! It is hard to believe that these lovely little flowers are flowering already! These beautiful little plants flower between January and April and are one of the first to appear while the ground is still covered with snow. They can do this as their hardened leaf tips mean that they can push through the frozen soil.
Snowdrops announce the arrival of spring. It is hard to think of Spring when it is so wet and windy outside today!.
With the arrival of the Snowdrops and the longer lighter nights, I am looking forward to the warmer and sunnier days as we head towards Spring.
