The Last

Imagine my disappointment when I arrived late Sunday night. I was up at the crack of dawn on Monday, ok even earlier than that. Do you know how difficult to figure out if there are still any snowdrops blooming by flashlight? Let me tell you, quite difficult. They are small little suckers, and if there are not a lot of them really don’t stand out by flashlight. And there were not a lot of them. In fact any of them,

but this.

She waited for me!

    Just one but the perfect one, right?
    Next time you need a flashlight to go around in your garden think that you always could set the Deliverance house on fire, just to get the right light and easily see your snowdrops… 🙂

    I’m so glad there was one waiting for you. It’s been such a strange spring that we are well ahead of schedule – I have lilacs blooming already!! Enjoy. Enjoy.

    We’ve had a roller coaster Spring in this neck of the woods. That stupendously hot spell in March and then bitter cold spells that felled everything in its path [including a slew of gorgeous double flowering Helleborus] reminding us that Mother Nature calls the shots. I have perhaps five or six Galanthus that were finished weeks ago! I am happy that this smashingly beautiful one waited to welcome you home!
