Happy Days Are Here Again!

Happy days are here again,

The skies above are clear again,

Let us sing a song of cheer again,

Happy days are here again!*

I decided to take this photo from an ants eye view, it makes it look like I have a lot more snowdrops  as well.

Yes, I could have put in another 87 photographs, but they would all be of the same patch, I decided not to bore you, you can thank me later.

*This song was published in 1929 by Milton Ager and Jack Yellen.

    A cheery patch, worth singing about. And they look like they’re happily multiplying. Love that about snowdrops.

    They look so cheery amongst the brown leaves. Spring is really happening!

    Happy Days! Your snowdrops are so cute and I like the ants view. I am going to have to plant some snowdrop bulbs. Also, I’m happy that warm weather has arrived for you! ~Amy

    Hi Deborah,
    I guess they’ve been waiting under the snow for this moment. Any sign of ‘Grumpy’?

      No Grumpy, that makes me grumpy, lol.
      It is interesting how as the snow receeds, there they are. I took note of where the snow melted first this year, I am going to move some around and see how early I can get them in flower next year.

    I’m never bored by snowdrops, and after seeing everyone’s posts this spring, I am determined to start a patch by my front door. Just wish I could find them in the green, but no one here sells that way, so I’ll wait til fall. They are such quiet little beauties!

    Lovely! I LOVE the ants-eye point of view. 🙂 I’ve never had snowdrops before… I’m thinking I’ll have to add some for next year if they can survive my climate (5b).

      Jenana, my garden is also in zone 5b(Canada) and would be zone 4b(US), so they will certainly survive in your garden. Please get some this fall, you will be delighted next year when they flower.
      Thank you for visiting my blog and leaving a comment, I hope I see you again.

    I moved to the coast to get away from anything to do with snow. But I can see I’ll have to make an exception when it comes to Snow drops and get myself some. These photos are lovely!

    just think this time next year you will have a load more blooms now that you have got that box of snowdrops in the green.

    Later this week Deborah I am doing a post on snowflakes – and not the icy type! but the spring snowflakes – you’ll love those too.

    We missed the snow btw but a couple of miles away the place is covered in the stuff – snowploughs out etc

      Yay, I hope so! I counted and there was 63 bulbs, and I planted them in a seperate area (Lime Walk) from where these are. Going to count the blooms in 2011 and see how many.
      Look forward to the snowflakes(not the real ones, lol).

    The one thing I love more than snowdrops is snowdrops in leaf litter. Can anyone look at a snowdrop without smiling? I can’t.

    Hi there,

    Have you ever tried Mr Nichols suggestion of displaying them with a mirror beneath them so you can see their pretty faces? I can’t recall now which book him mentions it in…..I think its the last of his trilogy….Laughter on the Stairs perhaps?

    Anyway, snowdrops are beautiful and so brave….

    I am glad to see your snowdrops blooming . From your photos you would think you have masses of them. They are beautiful. Hooray!
