    Snowdrops are so delicate and pretty!

  2. Murtagh's Meadow says:

    Lovely. Are your snowdrops only coming now? Ours feel long gone already.

    • Eliza Waters says:

      Yes, this is a photo I just took. We are WAY behind you – the gift the Gulf Stream has on your weather. πŸ™‚

      • Murtagh's Meadow says:

        Indeed. But if i remember from last summer you caught up with us by June:-) It had been an early spring, but we have had, and are currently having a cold spell which have slowed things down a little. Though not a bad thing!!

    Hardy and lovely plants. I will have to remember to plant them this year.

    • Eliza Waters says:

      Thanks, Hien. They are super easy and self-sow readily. I’ve started planting them in naturalized drifts around the yard. One never tires of these harbingers of spring!

  4. So pretty! Our crocuses (croci?) came out this weekend. It was a welcome sight after this winter!

  5. Yeah! Spring is here.!!

  6. Chloris says:

    So lovely. They are long gone here.

  7. Cathy says:

    Beautiful! You will be catching us up very soon I think!

  8. Jet Eliot says:

    So very, very adorable, these snow drops. Spring has finally arrived, Eliza, oh thank heaven.

  9. Alice Pratt says:

    Delicate, but survive some chilly nights and even some snow. I got a few good photos a few days ago.

  10. Your snowdrops are beautiful Eliza and the view of your country lane! It looks like you live in lovely New England.

  11. pastpeter says:

    They are a delight to see!

  12. dawnbirdau says:

    More like speechless, Eliza! Glad to hear and see spring has arrived.

  13. tippysmom2 says:

  14. Kris P says:

    They’re such perfect little blooms.

  15. Judie Sigdel says:

    Gorgeous picture, Eliza! ❀

  16. Spring is here! Very beautiful πŸ™‚

  17. Trini Lind says:

    So lovely! 😍😍

  18. It’s nice to see such a good photo that shows those delightful green bits on the flowers.

  19. Sue Vincent says:

    That’s a superb shot… they are so hard to photograph clearly enough to do them justice.

  20. Indie says:

    Very pretty! It’s so nice to see the early bulbs starting to bloom.

  21. Kathy Sturr says:

    YAY!!! Spring! The trees are tapped. The snowdrops are in bloom. Happy for you Eliza!

  22. Irene says:

    These are lovely! They almost look like they are looking right back at you. 😊

  23. The post may be wordless, but my comment is ‘beautiful.’ πŸ™‚

  24. Bela Johnson says:

    Little snowdrops! πŸ˜€

  25. naturebackin says:

    Beautifully captured, and I love the green markings on the white flowers. I hope that indeed this is the beginning of a lovely spring as the days lengthen and summer stretches out ahead!

    • Eliza Waters says:

      Thank you, Carol. For me, this is definitely the signal that spring has begun. They appear right after the snow melts, sometimes even piercing the snow in their haste! After our long, cold winters, I’m thrilled that we have the next six months of relative warmth ahead of us.
      And conversely for you, may your autumn and winter be enjoyable.

  26. Widdershins says:

    “Did someone see where I dropped my contact lens?” πŸ˜€

  27. Such a wonderful sight and photo!πŸ™‚ I’ve been on flower watch whenever I’ve been out, but haven’t seen anything.🌷

    • Eliza Waters says:

      Thank you! I’m surprised, as I thought your season is ahead of mine. I saw a couple purple crocus today near the house – no clue how they got there though. Maybe ants? Some are know to store seeds in their middens where they sprout.

  28. Joanna says:

    Oooh, you have flowers at last! πŸ™‚ I’m so jealous. Yesterday was just awful up here and I’m about to head out the door and dig us out of the huge drifts.

  29. Robin says:

    So pretty. Looks like spring took a few footsteps in your garden and left some flowers behind. πŸ™‚

  30. Dalo 2013 says:

    Snowdrops with the arrival of spring ~ a perfect photo for the perfect feeling of spring.

  31. Adele Brand says:

    Such delicate little things. Our snowdrops have disappeared until next year.

  32. Jewels says:

    Snowdrops are such sweet, delightful little things! πŸ™‚

  33. susurrus says:

    I’m nearly a week late claiming my smile, but it’s a broad one!

  34. Interesting blooms.I see eyes and droopy ears!
