I wanna be a cowgirl


A couple of weekends ago, Little Niece and her mummy came down from Leeds to visit us in Cambridge. We all drove over together to Granny and Granddad's house in Norfolk to see the amazing display of snowdrops, eat lots of cake and, incidentally, celebrate the bloke's birthday.

There are a lot of brains beaming out from behind those bottlecaps. She's a handful.

They do tend to form clumps after a few years. Give it some compost and it might be inspired to spread!

The snow drops seem so pretty! How long will they last? And when does your garden bloom?

The snowdrops last for 4-6 weeks. Ours are just on their last legs, or rather, petals, now. It's the daffodils' turn right now. Tulips are beginning to bud, so they'll be the stars of the show in a couple of weeks.

Wow, the final shot looks like a painting from a fantasy publication.

Some of that might be because it's slightly blurry. I wished I'd brought my tripod with me. It was freezing and damp that day and I couldn't stop shivering, so anything at less than 1/125 s was definitely a bit wobbly!

Mmm, I dunno. It seems absolutely just right to me. Happy Accident, FTW!
