The Last of the Snowdrops.
Much as I am so desperately pleased to see the gentle arrival of spring, I shall miss the sight of these brave little flowers by the front doorstep. I thought I would share them for probably the last time this year before the delicate petals fall and leave us till next.
These are the ones we bought from Coombe by the river. they will be planted soon into the ground by the courtyard where I hope they will gradually spread.
I'm afraid I didn't use my tripod and this combined with such billowy breezes means they are all a little out of focus. Less haste and all that, I guess.
Such deliciously blue skies behind with a pleasing scattering of pillow clouds. All so pretty, but very, very cold. I have barely warmed up all day and even sewed with mitts on this morning!
No complaining though because the sun is there, cold or not and that means spring is on its way to me.
So, it's almost time to say goodbye for now little snowdrops and thank you for cheering my winter days.
Hope the sun shines for you too x
