First Snowdrops

It’s been a tough week. So when I ventured into the garden this morning to hang washing out, I was heartened to see that the first snowdrops had appeared.

A small yellow flower had just pipped them to the post though; I think it’s a double primula. It looks a bit bedraggled and sorry for itself, but the colour is startling and most welcome in all the gloom!

And here’s another snowdrop picture, taken this afternoon in Derbyshire. Just because I like them!

Interesting ivy-draped doors.

And finally, buzzards soaring in the blue March air!
