After such a mild winter with very little snow, we really thought that March would continue with the mild conditions. Last night though a flurry or two arrived and the roads were icy. The emerging spring flowers had to take a break in their growth spurts.
I have been watching the crocus which have been tempting me with a little show of purple for about a week. With the temperatures still cool, it is still waiting to open and the snow didn’t give it any encouragement at all! I was spending all my time looking at the crocus that I almost missed 2 little snowdrops which also emerged at the end of last week.Their little white heads are not quite open, but this afternoon’s sun will probably coax it into flower.
