Fresh Hope

I found snowdrops blooming!
These little winter bulbs are so delicate, so sweet.
I believe they have cured the winter doldrums.

The last months of winter are the hardest to embrace.
I am a little more hopeful that we are closer to spring.

Jasmine, Ojni, Linz, So glad you stopped by. They are such a charming little bulb and they naturalize. Over time one bulb will produce more bulbs which form clusters of flowers. You can divide them and spread them in your garden beds.

Your snowdrops make me feel Spring is just around the corner which is a lovely thought!
