Snowdrops


"The beautiful Spring came; 
and when Nature resumes her loveliness; 
the human soul is apt to revive also."
Harriet Ann Jacobs







The delicate Snowdrops have pushed their way through the earth, and have brought life back to the the paths in the back woods. Little clusters of them have popped up all over the yard. Some are tucked among the hedges, others surround the base of the neighbor's fruit trees.


I picked a tiny handful to bring inside, and placed them in a small glass that makes an appropriately sized vase.


They really do bring with them a sense of hope, that soon the grass with be green, and the gardens in bloom, and Winter will be long gone.


We've also spotted some Crocuses too.

  2. They are so delicate and dainty. I brought a few in this morning too and placed them in one of my crystal cut glass salt shakers... one that long ago lost its mate. They have since opened and set the heart at ease that at last Spring has arrived.
    I assume you have made it to Oliver & Rust... looking forward to that soon.Enjoy the week.
