I went to visit my son, daughter in law and grandchildren today in their new home they live 10 minutes away. I was delighted when turning into the drive to see a mass of snowdrops

Ours haven’t appeared yet!

The difference in weather over such a short distance is due to the mountain in between !! We had all this snow they had green fields isn’t nature wonderful!

How lovely that they all live so close ... you'll be able to pop over all the time! Isn't it weird that there can be such differences in conditions in such a small area ... that mountain obviously has a great effect on the weather you both experience. Those snowdrops are a great sight ... how lovely it will be when they all open.

He ... he!... I popped mine in my bag yesterday on the way to work! Never done that before ... but I did get some shots of the localised flooding we're experiencing with all the rain this week. I was about to post them when I spotted your blog ... might go and do that now.

Beautiful Neellan, would love to have a big drift of snowdrops like that. I keep adding each year but it will take ages go get such a show.

It's lovely to see them :o)
My snowdrops have just come through. I saw them yesterday. I hope yours will not be long before appearing.

We had similar weather here before Christmas - green fields where I live but thick snow where my brother lives 6 miles away.

Snowdrop Valley on Exmoor opens on Sunday - so they must have them out.

I have two clumps in the garden in full bloom now - but many of the others are just little green spikes still. They are a treat to see, aren't they.

What a pleasure for you when you visit!

Beautiful sight,so many as well. Pleased to say mine have begun to flower I was ecstatic and rushed indoors for my camera as well.....As to the frogs, I think there must be some activity going on in my bottom pond because little rogue Brynner wont leave it alone, I think I`ll have to make another frame and net the pond before he ruins it...........

Thankyou Lincslass lovely to see them isn't after all the dreadful weather I hope Brynner wont be too upset with you for spoiling his pond fun, frogs will be chuffed no doubt lol
