April snowdrops

But at least the sun is shining today!

Snowdrops usually flower here in February: see a stroll among the snowdrops.

    Those are so fresh looking. They don’t grow here. Easy to see why they call them Snowdrops. (It’s grey and chilly – upper 40’s here again…but we got some rain. The lawn and oak trees are that bright spring green….but good I left some of the warm clothes out)

    Spring is finally here in Washington, D.C., though it’s still chilly. Check out my Easter blog to see some of the flowers in my garden – yay!

      I’ll admit to being just a teeny bit envious of your beautiful spring flowers, many of which are the same as ours. Still, I hope that we have them to look forward to on this side of the pond – one day! 🙂

        Hang on – it won’t be long! Our cherry blossoms are opening here. 68 degrees today!!

    Does this mean that summer will linger into September and October? We have had more snow than usual this year, but our ‘usual’ of the last 15 years has been a drought! Finally it is warming, and I believe I can safely plant my annuals. I enjoy every season, but appreciate the first blooms of Spring more than I can say. Best wishes for the season to you, and the lovely people who comment here.

      Ah, now, wouldn’t that be wonderful, Margaret. Our March felt like February, and our April feels like March; so my husband is hoping that August will feel like July and so on!
      The first flowers of spring are so special, aren’t they, like a cool drink to a parched throat. Enjoy your gardening.

    At last! We are grasping at any signs of Spring this year.

    Isn’t it incredible? And our daffodils are barely out. In Wales, the first daffodils are usually out for St David’s Day on 1st March. But the sunshine is very welcome – long may it continue.

      Yes, I can usually count on one or two daffs to be out by the birthday of a Welsh friend on 5th March. This year, I was finally able to pick some half-open ones today, a month late!

    What a lovely sight. It’s such extraordinary weather everywhere this year. Up in these Welsh hills our daffodils are just starting to show some colour, but are far from out. But as you say, the sun is shining and our snow is melting – slowly….

      Your daffodils are ahead of ours, but that is as it should be, you being in Wales after all. May your thaw continue apace!
