Flowers Despite The Snow

The snow is melting in the sunnier parts of the garden so snowdrops are doing what they do best flowering despite conditions

Primroses too a little battered but doing their best

One lone Crocus tempted out in the sunshine

The Hellebore in a pot by the front door basking in the sunshine

A promise that Spring is not so far away after all!

I love that last shot, with the sun shining through. Not so keen on the snowy bits! Had lots of flurries here yesterday but just thick ice this morning so I had a very careful walk. It's lovely to think that spring is just around the corner.

Happy hopeful blog Neena thanks for the bright sunny start to the day
I looked at my garden yesterday and the snowdrops are out but the hellebores are still tight buds as are the primroses, and crocus are still just shoots.....still lots to look forwards too, soon I hope 🌞

Saw signs of my crocus today Neena! Can't remember if I've ever told you...? But I planted them out to read 2000 for the new Millennium. I really should have planted more boldly... I'm the only person who can see that they read 2000!!! ;D

Glad they are appearing for you I'm sure they will look lovely and have done well to keep their shape after all this time ;o)
