Snowdrops in January
Arianell and Floradora walked through a snowdrift…
...when one flower on a stalk is added to another, and another and another…
…they make a snowy forest.
They are so beautiful it is tempting to pick them…
…but the Friday flowers are staying in the garden this time!
I love snowdrops. So do rabbits, so all the ones we planted in our garden got scoffed. The upside of our final bunny going to the Great Warren is we’ll be able to reclaim our garden. Snowdrops are going on the list 🙂
I am sorry about your ex-bunny, but hope there are many snowdrops in The Great Warren…also that in your garden many snowdrops will sprout this year, or soon!
that’s kind, thank you. There is always a silver lining, and removing all the wire from round all the borders and trees has been one of them. x
The snowdrops are the perfect kind of snow…no shoveling required…and best of all…you want it to stay.
They are perfect – delicate drifts in sheltered places, and such pretty little flowers close up from a Hitty’s-eye-view!
What a lovely nostalgia trip you’ve sent me on! Can I also look forward to primroses, later on?
Alas the monstrous 10 inch long slugs in our part of the world are very fond of primroses 😦
Oh, yuck! I thought the 3 inch leopard slugs I used to get in NSW were bad enough… They used to decimate my lettuces, Chinese cabbage and baby beets.
Delicately beautiful. Arianell and Floradora have blessed us with a glorious walk today. Thank you for taking us along with you, dear little dolls.
They didn’t have to go too far to find the snowdrop drifts, though the ones in our garden seem a little reluctant to appear this year.
Oh my goodness, they are so glorious! Thank you!
You are welcome – the snowdrops are so encouraging, they are so dainty and yet persistent, little spikes pushing up through the mulch and the blossom unfurling – they make me think of The Secret Garden.
how lovely to live where there are flowers blooming in January! The girls look so happy in their snowy drift!
We are very lucky! It is especially nice on a day like this when there is even a glow of sunlight, as it can be pretty dim and damp here in winter!
Oh, snowdrops… Maybe they’ll bloom here after four months. Now there is almost half meter snow on them. I do love spring (maybe most), but now it’s time to enjoy winter: skiing, skating, ice fishing, building snowcastles…
To enjoy that kind of lovely snowy winter the Quimper Hittys would have to travel several hours north, or gain a few hundred meters in altitude! We live right by the salt water, in the far west coast, and we have temperatures between 0 and 7, with apparently endless grey and wet winters. The early snowdrops are very welcome here!
The Quimper Hittys want to build a snow castle…
