Snowdrops!

I got out for a walk today and the sunshine made it feel like springtime! It was +10 C! And look what I found out there... snowdrops!

They are soooo cute! They were down by a creek and growing in clumps... Hmmm, maybe we should transplant a clump to my garden!

I know some of my stuffie pals are still up to their ear-tips in snow but... spring is coming!

    1. More snow!!?? My goodness... I am thinking about planting sweet peas in the soil... we are still getting just below freezing at night so we still have to be patient.

    2. Jerry says "grumble, grumble", then goes back to looking at his gardening catalogue.

  2. Ben says he'd better not give Jerry this news, because Jerry would be jealous. Jerry will not be planting until May...we have the possibility of frost and freezing up until that date!

    1. Shhh... don't tell him! We used to have to wait until Victoria Day in May (3rd Monday) when we lived in Calgary... but not anymore!

    1. Oh yes and I saw crocuses too! We did have about 1 inch of snow the other day and there is some on the mountains but not much here (it melts pretty quick).
