At Last

IMG_4753 IMG_4759At last, there are flowers in my garden! While large patches of snow remain all over the yard, the sunny front bed offers up its gift of snowdrops (Galanthus nivalis)Β in the spring sunshine. I’ve been waiting all winter for this moment…the gardening year has begun!IMG_4758

    Wahoowa!! Snowdrops! So glad you’re seeing them.

  3. I LOVE snowdrops – since I was 3 years old, I remember them (when we lived in Maryland). We don’t have them in NM. I guess the soil just doesn’t support them. Thanks for the treasured memory Eliza!

  5. They are so pretty! I haven’t seen snowdrops in ten years (since I moved to Florida), but I remember their scent.

    Hurrah for snowdrops. It has been a long wait for you. Here the first fruit blossoms are opening – today the plum and the pear not far behind!

    More Miracles, Eliza! At first glance I thought these were Crocuses, but then I realized they are snowdrops. I just came in from outside attempting to photograph budding trees, but between the wind and the COLD, I gave up. Yes, it has turned cold here AGAIN with snow in the forecast. I will keep my eyes on my flowers! (((HUGS))) Amy

    I’ve come to know the Snowdrops, but they don’t grow here, they’re so nice!

  13. A happy day! Enjoy getting back out in the garden!

  14. And not a moment too soon! These are just lovely and such a welcome sight. YAY!!!!

  15. Woo-Hoo! And I can see the ground! Finally the snow is melting. Eliza, here spring begins to break through winter’s grip, and you head off south! Timing is everything πŸ˜‰ So happy to see your beautiful flowers πŸ˜‰

      Thank you, I’m hoping that when I get back most of the snow will be gone, at least from the sunny areas. The north side shadows will take a bit longer, but I feel a whole lot better seeing these cheerful snowdrops. πŸ™‚

  16. I’m envious. No sign of the scilla I planted.

  17. Karen says:

    I can’t imagine anything better Eliza – Happy Spring.

  18. Robbie says:

  20. Rebecca says:

    So glad you have some green back in your life after the long white winter πŸ™‚

  21. Kathy Sturr says:

    What a beautiful drift of Snowdrops! I just planted some – I hope they naturalize like this. HAPPY SPRING!

  22. Heather says:

    When the first spring flowers blossom, it’s like a great sigh of relief. Spring really is here!

  23. Leyla says:

    pretty πŸ™‚

  24. Sharon says:

    These are lovely. I planted a couple patches last fall and was delighted with their appearance this spring.

    Do you divide these, Eliza?

  25. Opher says:

    It sprung – then it sprung back – It snowed here yesterday!
    Thanks for the like – Best wishes Opher from Opher’s World

    • Eliza Waters says:

      Yes, the weather has been unusual all year, starting with the crazy winter. Snow in April is discouraging!
      I know a lot of folks aren’t happy with the cool spring, but I am loving it. The spring bulbs prefer it and they last so much longer, giving me a chance to savor their beauty. Thanks for your visit and follow. Appreciate it!
