Snowdrops and Aconite
After days of pelting rain, Henrietta saw that the weather forecast was for mild and pleasant weather …
...as indeed it proved to be! She took herself out for a neighbourhood stroll…
…where she found the earliest of early wildflowers poking up out of the grass and soil.
The youngest human says these are her birthday flower – we love them for that…
…and because they are so beautiful!
Oh, how lovely!
Our aconite bulbs are not in flower yet.
We haven’t been out far enough to look for snowdrops yet as we have a lake where our fields used to be. Our sheep have been in the barn for weeks and they, like we Hittys, are very keen to go out but, alas, water wings and rubber rings don’t come in their size or ours! Six weeks of constant rain is enough, so we hope it stops soon!
Love to you all, big and small,

Drat about the unexpected waterfront property…I hope the constant rain lets up before you feel the need to build an ark.
What a lovely change for you from the strange winter weather you’ve been having. It’s nice to see these “birthday” flowers, the snowdrops as well as the aconites. You have such colorful surroundings.
We were on the hunt for snowdrops, so the winter aconite was an unexpected delight! We are very fortunate!
A-w-w Youngest human is so adorable. I love the way she sees things. Having a birthday flower is so touching.
I love it too, it is a delight to experience the world with her.
I remember the smell of snowdrops, a cold, green scent… Your photos are very evocative!
They are such a wonder and delight and promise, even if a cold and green one!
I am enchanted by the almanac!! And the flowers of course….but that almanac is just so perfect!!
The almanac is one of the Quimper Hittys’ favourite reference books!
