Snowdrops – Haiku

Pearls in the garden
gleaming through the bawdy weeds
singing of the spring

The first signs….

Despite the downpours and the freezing gale force wind today (that really, really, hasn’t been helpful while I was outside with my camera), there is evidence in my garden that the plants are waking up and that it’s not too long until spring.

As the ancient Chinese proverb says:

‘Spring is sooner recognized by plants than by men.’   It certainly seems so today!
