February, a new month. Traditionally February is the Snowdrop month.
Today all we have in the garden and local woods are a few very tiny green shoots, in fact they looked rather the same on January 1st. Last year, on February 1st., I was out with the camera capturing these harbingers’ of Spring.
The seasons are always a bit of a lottery… there was a time when seasonal change and the flora seemed to work to a well defines timetable….. not anymore.
So we live in hope that we will be blessed with a ‘White Carpet’ before too long. Snowdrops really are the true indicator that Spring is on its way., they may be small but they pack a big message.
No matter the vagaries of the seasons…..Lets start the month as we mean to go on…. so..
Please Remember ….
Stay Safe …. Be Kind…. Look After Each Other
