What a strange winter we’re having. Down here in Devon we’ve had even more rain than usual and winds strong enough to make Dorothy and Toto run for cover. But no snow. Up here on Dartmoor we always have snow in December or early January but nothing’s happened yet. The toboggans sit dejected.
A quick stroll round the garden though shows that things are afoot. As expected the winter pansies and some primulas are still going strong and the roses are sporting a few lonely blooms. Some daffodils are in big bud, just waiting for the right moment. But the really good news is that the snowdrops have arrived. So, we have none of the powdering white stuff but we do have snowdrops!
I’m sure that some gardens in warmer, lower parts of the country, will have been sporting snowdrops for a while. How about letting us know and posting some photos? We all need to know that spring is just around the corner.
