The Promise of Spring--Fulfilled!

We took a walk with Charlie just a little while ago and look what was waiting for us in the yard! Snowdrops! They come even before crocuses around here but I've never had any in my yard until we moved to the Cottage three years ago. I love their brave little bells bending to the wind and cold of March! Yes, it is only six days until the official first day of spring but it is a gray 40 degrees out there with a bit of a breeze. The kind of weather that makes you eager to put the kettle on for tea upon returning from a walk. I think I'll go do that right now!

OH! Aren't you lucky!?! Flowers in your yard!

The first flowers I see in my yard are always the myrtle, but that's still under the ice and snow.

Then come the violets. Can't wait!

I do feel lucky to have flowers already! But I am happy to share them any time you want to come and visit!
