|The spring, it is coming
Mad Scientess Jane Expat
Remember the 565 bulbs the bloke & I planted in our garden last year?
We have confirmation of survival.
It IIISSS. Fortunately, I don't think it can move too quickly.
oh, how beautiful. well done!
We are pleased, we are. Especially after this harsh winter, and after discovering more than a few bulb corpses that had clearly been nibbled by squirrels. Grrr.
Those flowers are quite lovely. I've never seen those before
I'm not sure they're too common in the US. Of course, I used to live in California, so I don't remember much except cacti, palms and jacaranda trees, which have beautiful purple flowers and orange pollen that is nearly impossible to remove from vehicle paint. Anyway, snowdrops are widespread in the UK and people deliberately plant huge carpets of them. They form spectacular white carpets which are hailed as a sign of spring.
I like the picture. Glad spring is coming.
Did you get the package I sent you (it should be arriving any day now)?
I did, thank you! Have brought the prints home to put in my studio - I have a section of wall reserved for inspiration from friends. :-)
It's a beautiful shot. I can almost feel the snowdrops swaying a bit in the breeze. Keep us posted on any more survivors.
I will. If I can get home from work before it gets dark at any point in the next two weeks. Sigh.
