We've had a strange winter - record cold temperatures here for a few weeks in December, but one of the warmest Januarys on record. Spring, that fickle tease, has shown her face on a few lovely days here and there. Yet I see pictures from friends and family buried under the second blizzard in a week on the east coast, and I'm a little jealous of the snow... much as they are probably a little jealous (or a lot) of our mild weather, after the novelty of snow wears off. Grass is always greener...
Snowdrops are the first sign of the coming season in our garden. These little beauties started blooming on the first day of February.
