Snow, Glorious Snow

I am probably the only person in the world thinking that.  But living in a tropical country, it is (a bit) surprising that I miss it. But really I am celebrating it for what it did.  Last year  there had been an early warm spell , and everything flowered ahead of schedule. You may remember I only saw one lonely snowdrop. So this year I am excited when I read the weather reports and see photos on people’s blogs about the snow. This year, I am hoping to see my drops.  In the meantime, I spend time lurking on the Galanthus site of the SRGC, and drooling over snowdrops on Pauline’s, Carolyn’s and Anna’s blogs.

My neighbour was nice enough to send me a photo of Kilbourne Grove when the storm happened a couple of weeks ago. 

First it was light, then wow,

that is a great cover to keep my snowdrops from flowering before I arrive.

Snow, glorious snow!

    And we’re gettign it again!! After a warm, nice day yesterday, we’ve gotten about 6 cm of slushy, heavy snow. You wouldn’t be missing it if you had to shovel that!! Not that I do it either, but you know.

    I completely understand why you miss the snow. I love it too, and we haven’t had any this winter. I hope the snowdrops are there when you arrive. Thanks for linking to my site.

    Well, it’s snowing like crazy right now in Stouffville (north of Toronto). It’s really beautiful but now I have to drive in it! The maple syrup festival begins next week at Bruce’s Mill so I know spring is around the corner – cant wait!

    Send a little bit my… pretty please? 🙂 I live in a ski resort and we’ve got very little snow this year.

    We got off easy last year and Old Man Winter is making up for it this year. We have so much snow, I am beginning to despair that it will ever be spring. If this keeps up, you will be enjoying snowdrops for sure.
