Happy Spring says the Snowdrops!

 Today when I got home from work I was thrilled to see a little Snowdrop has pushed it's way up through the lingering ice. I am so so excited!
 This is the first year I have planted these, should have gotten them sooner! Snowdrops are famous for being the first bulb to pop up and this year they are not letting me down.

Here is Wisconsin the first day of Spring usually means mud season. No tiny green shoots, no warm breezes yet.
I am glad at lest the Snowdrops know it is Spring!


  1. I know just what you mean about "why didn't I do this sooner?". Every Spring, I admonish myself for not having set some bulbs in the Fall, and every Fall it is only barely on my radar screen. One year, I planted a few tulips and daffodils, they didn't do great, and then they rotted and something ate a bunch of them. Maybe next year.....
