How wonderful, Alan, a definite sign that Spring is just around the corner. Unfortunately we don't have snowdrops here, so I have to enjoy the many images that are uploaded to ePZ Smile Carol

A nice reminder Alan...we have a couple of hundred of different varieties up the top section of the garden..I'll go take a look in the morning to see how they are coming on this year Smile
The difference in varieties can be as subtle as an extra green dot..though I do have a variety with mustard yellow dots .

The signs are there Alan. Spring is just around the corner.

A really good picture, Alan and sooo encouraging that Spring is just round the corner!
I think we can add 15 minutes per week to the daylight count - can't wait for lighter nights!

I can hardly believe they are emerging already! I miss these flowers so much - we just don't have them here. What I have are some poppies that are starting to germinate.

I haven't thought to look for ours yet! Well captured with that hint of white and moisture.

How beautifully captured. Off outside immediately to check as I didn't see any signs of my Snowdrops last week but they can shoot through so suddenly.
