Hope Springs Eternal




Having spent a couple of weeks being warmed by the sun, eating  deliciously prepared  food and being surrounded by some lovely people, we returned tired from a long flight feeling slightly dispirited. Our taxi turned into the drive and a wonderful sight met us. Snowdrops had sprung up all over the front lawn during our absence. A sure sign spring is on the way. I always see their nodding heads as little beacons of hope. Life is good isn't it?

I'm glad you enjoyed your vacation--I was wondering where you were! The snowdrops are beautiful! We are still buried in snow here, but it is raining today, so only a few months to wait for flowers.

Welcome home.

Snowdrops are my second favourite flowers (after primroses) just so pretty.

I've seen two blogs with snowdrops in past five minutes so looks like spring is definitely in the air!
