Harbringers of Spring

Last October I decided I would quite like a snowdrop carpet for my front garden.  It didn't seem too difficult to make happen. 

I bought nets of snowdrop bulbs and placed them in the ground with my willing helpers.




It seems like only yesterday we did that and not four months ago.

Today I went looking in the area where we planted little families of bulbs; putting them in their beds so they could sleep and wake up, heralding the arrival of spring.

Guess what I found in my garden today?  

Yes!  The first signs of spring!

  1. I love gardening, roses, clematis, delphiniums etc, but nothing at all beats a snowdrop.
